Just have come back from my tour. St Anton was amazingly wild and Austrian guys like high pace and climbing with skis on while Italian side, the guys like to relax and enjoy the ride ( but I was glad that i was with more experienced guys who saved me from very sticky situations,mainly due to the lack of my experience, though all of them were impressed that I was able to free ride just after to years from learning how to ski)! I had a bit of a scary ride with them. took me a day to recover. When we got down I was feeling accomplished and relieved. But when they mentioned that there was a second ascent I had a shock and bailed out. These guys are made of rock!
The skis are amazing and they were the right size in tight spots and on pistes and now problem at high speed especially in crud when you have to take a lot of short turns. Superb! Though yesterday and today after a heavy snow fall I realized that I had to fall back a lot on the back of my skis to release the weight from the fronts in order to make them to surface. Also, when free riding in a really deep snow they would go really well till I would slow down. Though on moderate and very dodgy icy descends I was glad that they were short.
When in sankt anton I realized how poor my skiing T
technic is. I was simply told by my off piste teacher that I ski with power and not the skills and not ready to go touring and should pay him for more off pistes lessons, but I did go anyway. In Sankt Anton everyone tends to have gigantic skis, fat and long whereas in Val Gardena, dolomites it's short and slim (their ski lifts ski racks couldn't even fit my skis in so I had to put them into snowboard's racks). (Kitzbuhel I wont mention as I was caught in a storm)
Basically, After yesterday I began to think to get longer skis in 176cm ( I am 175 cm and 80kg), though my turns are yet far from perfect (not alpine style yet)
So If any one wants to buy my skis or have an advise how to sell them, please let me know. I had them fully serviced by a really good ski servicing technician.
