Forward to 2010 life is in the way ( job,rent,bills,2 teenage girls) I told my wife this year we are going sking. It happened on 12/25/2010 in Durango Co.!
It was like having sex for the first time all over again! Well I have those skis at my Moms house in Brownsville Tx the last place of someone even thinking of snow much less skiing, I could not get them sent in time so I rented some Atomic 159s those were the biggiest the rental ski shop had, with the oldest boots including cracks I have ever seen. Well at 5'11" 240 pounds 47 years young, I felt that the 159s were short, light for me because while turning I would feel them skiding from under me then again maybe it was the lack of lessons! I don't know. Well 3 days later I was doing good coming down on some easy green trails falling lesser and lesser, but had the best time ever in my life!!
Now back to the grinding stone, I want more I think I have ski fever in me, and can't wait to go back to Durango to finnish my long life dream, with lessons this time I just mite become a ski bum!
I got one question the XScreams 195s vintage 2002 are still bran new never seen snow! When I go back I'm taking them with me! Are those good skis for me just have to adjust them to me again?
