Wow. Thanks guys. These are exactly what the sides of mine look like too.
EMT ive got the exact same as yours on my nose where the edge would normally be on the base/bottom side. It was getting worse as ice got in it. That was from a ski edge just from contact in the lift queue.
Im not overly precious about my boards but I don't think they should be looking like thisafter a few days. Especially as they're not low-end. Mine £630 (GBP), whereas my old burton custom was showing less damage and holding up better after 4 years and was only $450 (USD) - which is half as much.
I'll keep you posted about what LT say about mine and the softer top sheets
