They would probably be clean after that, with the exception of holes. What percentage of original value is available in the resale market? Assuming things are more normal in spring or next fall /early winter.

How many holes does it take to fill the Albert Hall?
Ski depreciation is considerable, imo.
If it's a current model in great shape, inc. the bases, with desirable bindings attached, I'd try to post it on Craigslist or etc. at close to, but just below, what you paid for them. Knock off $$$ if the bindings are removed.
If you get no buyers, drop the price in small increments every week until it sells, pre and early season, except during snow storms, in which case I'd jack the price back up--buyers are motivated by the weather. Not kidding. In season they will sell for more than in the off season.
Skis with considerable cosmetic damage, and older skis, are worth hardly anything. Older drilled skis without bindings are worth much less than that, you might even have to pay someone to take 'em.
