Just joined, and thought I'd start off with a recent problem I have encountered. Just recently, one of my skis broke from the core tearing apart from inside the ski. The kind of skis I got are Atomic Blackeye TI 2011's, and I keep them well maintained. I noticed this problem two runs after a speed run I did down a trail from catching first chair. The ski was starting to bulge because snow was starting to get packed inside. Looking back on the stats from MOD Live and the Contour + camera, I hit speeds of 65 to 70 mph going down the trail which was pretty accurate. I brought it to the shop and the guy there said Apoxy should fix it (the section of where the edge connects to the ski, and the top portion was disconnected at the very front, and no exterior damage suggesting an impact was present. I didn't hit a rock or anything). When I went to the store I usually do business with, he said the core was torn apart and the ski was no good.
I don't know if speed caused this or if it just was a bad ski and prolonged pressure on the structural flaw caused this to eventually happen. Anyone else have this issue? Discuss.
