Thought some might find the Aussie perspective interesting.
Steven Lee knows a little about skiing, competed in 3 Winter Olympics, had a World Cup victory, 25 WC top 15 finishes in downhill and Super G.... and otherwise a good bloke.
What most northerners (i.e. those north of the equator) fail to realise is that even though our season is short, we generally get to ski the new season skis before you as they are released at the end of yoru season but at the beginning or befreo the start of ours.
That said, a fairly narrow view. As many Aussies travel to overseas ski as well as skiing at home, their influences are just as likely to be foreign as domestic. For a wider view, head somewhere like ski.com.au
