I've been lurking here for a month or so and I finally registered. I started skiing circa 1960 in laced leather boots and wooden skis with Cubco bindings (Does anybody remember Cubco bindings?) By 1970, I was skiing on 203 Rossingnol Strato 102's (Loved them) and a pair of yellow Nordica racers that I wouldn't wish on Saddam Hussein. Those boots are probably a big part of why I then abruptly stopped skiing for about 20 years. In the early 90s, I skied a few times over a couple of seasons and realized to my surprise that my body remembered how to do things that my mind had long forgotten. I bought a pair of Salomon 83EXP boots which were a big improvement over my Nordicas but were, of course, a mistake. For a variety of reasons, I stopped again but just skied again this last season and I hope to get back to skiing regularly next season and beyond. My equipment and technique obviously need a lot of updating and I have a lot of questions but I'll save that for later. For now, I'm sorry for the long winded introduction but I just wanted to say hello.
