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.
