Well, I'll tell ya....
Hard snow skis:
I've got a quiver of 'em. Love to get on my SL here on the tiny hills of Detroit. I've got a pair of sweet GS and a pair of burly GS and they're great fun to go fast on.....lean 'em over, lots of forces....love it! Gave away my DH and never really use my SG 'cause I just don't need to go any faster or straighter than I can achieve on the burly GS. Also have a pair of MX88 that are not only amazing but a ton of fun on the right day in the right frame of mind. Same can be said about my bump skis.
However, if I never get on any of those it might very well be the best season ever.
If that turns out to be the case I will choose between these as my daily driver.
On the left, Bluehouse Maestros (118 waist), pretty much my everyday ski for the last couple of years. On the right, Bluehouse Mavens (138 waist), my 'pow day' boards.
The Mavens were new to me last year and I followed the neo-traditional wisdom and kept them in the car for days with less than a lot of new. Late in my season I had been thrilled with them for like...two days...so when we got a ~6" day (and the wax on the Maestros was thin) I decided to take 'em out one more time. Had a fricken blast! They made it ski bottomless then made the cruddy bumps ski like a soft groomer.
It was a different kind of experience. Maybe more like riding than skiing.
