Looking forward to meeting y’all in Colorado, it will be my first time there. Ok, that’s not entirely true; I raced in the (for those that remember it) Red Zinger Mini Classic as a wee lad, but what I remember I could write on the inside flap of a matchbook using dull crayon.
I am planning on demoing while at the gathering in CO, how and through who is the best way to go about doing that? I have a few specific skis I would like to try, Motive 84 chief among them, but I suppose conditions (and the wisdom of my fellow gatherers) will have a say in what I ski.
Being from FL, anytime I ski I’ll be flying, so I am hoping to find for me what SJ would call his ‘keep it in the car’ ski. Sadly, mine will be 'keep it in a corner of the bedroom' down here, next to a crumpled up ski bag.
Thanks to the list of bootfitters on here, I already have an appointment with skibootfitting.com before we get started (bootfitters are sparse in my area); is there anything else I should be thinking about? I’m working on my snow dance; it will probably look a lot like my please-God-no-hurricanes-here-this-year dance…
