The ski passage can take about 3 pairs; probably can get 4 - not sure. If you have folding rear seats, you can carry a bunch on the right (small 1/3) side - I've had 4 pairs plus 2 snowboards. 180cm is about as long as you can carry: plenty long for slaloms, enough for GS (my old Volkl P60's are 180cm), but probably not good for SG/DH.
