Hell no dude, you can buy skins then cut them yourself. They come with a little cutter and directions on how to cuy them out and cut correctly. Go to http://gearx.com/snow-sports/climbing-s ... c&limit=24 they sell seconds and blemished skins for cheep. The thickness of the skin is all that matters, prob on the Jones solution you'll want something 120 to 140 millimeters wide. As long as the skin covers your ski underfoot it will work fine.

I'm in VT if you want to go for a split.

You either do your own or you got the G3 and the Black Diamond (which is what Voile sells).

Climbing skins direct ones work great and are quite a bit cheaper than the rest. Use Spark R&D tail clips for great success!
