Have you walked around town and looked at the mink parkas? Still shocked?
Back here, fair number of new S6's, S3's on the off-to-the-woods crews and on patrol folks. Some Prophet sightings. Bunches of Blizzards (everything from FIS spec to Supersonics) on racers, speed demons on piste. Titan Atlases can be found on dads of racers, coaches, even some rental shops. Some Dynastar Course Ti's and Cross Ti's, a couple of the Exclusives. Surprising number of Rossi 80's and 82's; have to say for around here, Rossi seems to be the happiest brand out there cuz also second most popular racing ski for J's here. Fair number of the Atomic platform carvers (D2's etc.) A few new Sollie Tornados and Enduros. And an oddity: We've always had some midfat Elans floating around on feet of good skiers, patrol types. Still true, so a few pair of 82's sighted. Rare on civilians.
One lone pair of MX78's so far this season, Phil, other than mine. But we don't have Native American hand woven hats, either, so we don't really count.
Rentals seem to be narrower K2's or Volkls, but few new K2's on the slope that belong to skiers. Maybe coupla Luv's, but I don't keep track of which swirly graphic goes with which year. Handful of new Mantras, coupla new Kendos and Auras seen, one new Grizzly I can recall, not much sign of narrower Volkls for either sex.
