It needs to be posted in every thread about powder... :)

 

Just imagine if we had a time machine and could go back to that time, but with our modern equipment.  It would be fun to see 70's skier's reactions to 2014 powder skis!

Between that video and American Hustle, I think we're overdue for big fluffy hair with long sideburns...:eek

I can really only see three classifications of a powder ski...

 

1. Big mountain charger / powder slayer

 

2. Playful / surfy

 

3. Back country boats (think DPS Lotus)

 

But then of course my ski of choice is about a 1.5 - stiff enough to charge, but not too stiff and shaped / constructed to be surfy.

I would rock those pants today, especially with some Ray-bans and a 'stache. Also, I would gladly wear those pants if I was 1 of 3 people at Alta on a powder day.

Yet if you were there that day, you would have thought it couldn't get any better given what we knew back then.

I'll admit I was always a little skeptical of the hype.  I find it hard to believe someone could spend a full day on them and not want a pair.
