Faction Skis - at SKI Mag / Okemo Demo Days Dec 10th & 11th, 2011

Thread Starter 

I just wanted to let everyone know that Faction Skis will be at the Okemo / SKI Mag consumer super demo next week on the 10th & 11th of December. I'm the Northeast Rep for Faction and really the first rep they've had in the Northeast.

 

If you've ever wanted to test these skis out, this will be your first time to do so here in the east. I'll have the following skis to demo:

 

Area (2 pairs), Heroine (2 pairs), Wednesday (2 pairs), Kennedy (2 pairs), Agent 100 (1 pair) & Prodigy (1 pair).

The first time I saw a pair of Faction skis was at ESA Aspen Snowmass last January.  

Very interesting design, to say the least.

Let's hope they have some top to bottom skiing by then. The weather is not looking that good. My first day this season will be this Sunday.

Yeah, I'm thinking if it can stay cold now and get some good snowmaking weather, the trails they have open will be ok I hope.

Had a great time at Okemo's Demo Day.  Didn't get to try the Faction skis since they seemed to all be up the hill when I was at the bottom.  Same was true of the Blizzards.   I did try some Heads that I liked so much I went and found a demo pair at a decent price.  My daughter loved the Kastels she rode but the price of those is a bit much for her (and daddy ain't buying them for her ;>) 

 

Hope to have my new Heads in time for my upcoming trip to CO.  That would be great.  Tried some Atomics that were GREAT when I was good but were too unforgiving for a fat ol' duffer like me - the back seat was a bit scary on those puppies.  But stay in the front seat and get on the edge and they TURNED.  Now. And quickly.  Shortest radius I think I ever experienced.  Probably fabulous glade skis But I need stability - especially out west.

 

Okemo is a really nice little mountain.  We kept to the same 3 trails so we could demo the skis in the same conditions  Up and down, no real lift lines, it was a fun day and I found it very interesting and useful to try various skis that way.
