Hi Guys, Gals,
I thought I did enough research around here and elsewhere to make an informed decision about purchasing my first pair of shaped skis. Long story you've all heard some variation of around here before. In my case: competitive GS as a teenager, started smoking pot and listening to rock and roll, lost my Fischer 200s with 989 Equipes somewhere in the mid-90's. Ski'd once since then--in jeans--with the full rental mental package in Park City during the Olympics in '02 just because I was there...
I diligently did my research and set out to find a pair of narrow slalom/carving skis exclusively for use in Minnesota (I'm taking my boots only if I ever make it out to CO).. Funnily enough, however, I visited two different shops northeast of St. Paul, that shall remain nameless, in which the employees tried to put me on Brahmas. One of the shops even tried to put me on 180s. Oh, BTW, here are my stats:
Size 15 feet
38 Years old.
Exclusively in Minnesota, probably mostly at Afton.
So now I'm confused and daydreaming about mid-fat all-mountains... Sorry for starting another "what ski" thread, but jeez: What ski??
