In a period marked by New School fats and rocker skis, With lots of interest in out of bounds skiing

Isn't it something that this year would be marked by very high snow falls?

 

At least in the West ;-)

 

I'm keeping the hard snow, skinny waisted, stiff boards.  That's just being real.

 

Will the old powder boards be "acceptable" when age takes away their camber and stiff shovels?

 

Will I keep pace with the opening terrain? 

 

Love those deep turns

Post need points?  I never knew that.

 

But if there were to be Any.

 

I am continually surprised by the zeal shown by each " generation" of "new ski technology" advocates.  The ski world went into a buzz when "shaped ski's"  hit the market. All the while,  the fundamental skills, abilities, and dynamics of good skiing hold constant. Very enjoyable experiences can be had skiing on such a variety of "ski types" that I find quality judgment puzzling.  (JUST SAY NO TO SNOW BLADES!)

 

Present trends in "away from the area" access to recreation brings additional demands for equipment suited to the skiers needs. And so, the popularity of "fat skis".  My old CMH  Explosiv seems to serve all such requirements for me, a "Joe Average" .   It is nice that the manufacturers are offering such an array of options to fill this requirement. Were Volants that far ahead of the times?   Is it always better "on top"?

 

Most importantly,  The significant point:

 

There are no discouraging words on snow days!

 

Are we fortunate,or what!

"The ski industry loves to reinvent itself" (seems like an appropriate comment in a thread about nothing).
