Hi there, I am new here, please excuse me if I am repeating someone else's thread. I am an avid skier who has dabbled in racing many years ago. I still love to go fast and carve big GS turns. I found my perfect skis about 10 years ago. They are the Atomic Beta Race 10"22. They are perfect for my style of skiing. Unfortunately mine are near the end of their life. Last winter I bought a newer set of skis from a young racer thinking they would be similar to my old ones (Atomic Race GS double decker 183cm) but they are much stiffer, and the bases are not as fast as my older 10"22's. I only got to try them once and they have very sharp edges from tip to tail. I am wondering if anyone can offer advice before the season begins this year. Should I have the new ones de-tuned and try them some more? Or am I trying the wrong ski and should sell the new ones to the proper person before the season opens?
FYI - I live in T.O. and ski mostly at Blue Mountain and do the occasional trip to Banff for some real skiing.
