Last year Philpug set us up with a great demo day at Alpine during the Gathering. So much fun to get to try the latest and greatest.


Today, Alpenglow sponsored a fantastic demo day, again at Alpine. We got to try some wonderful skis.


I have wanted to try the DPS skis for a while - I got my wish! Very nice skis. Well behaved and predictable. Not magic for me though.


The day's surprise was the Moment Sierra skis my wife tried. She loved them. More than her own Volkls. They did everything well from carving the hard patches to bumping the moguls. Sweet skis on many levels.


For me, the Moment skis I tried were most interesting. Sorry to be so vague as to which one (Bliss?) but when I turned them in, a potty stop was a high priority. They were fairly wide with a bit of early tip rise. They skied great! I had to work them pretty hard but I was rewarded with a ski that would do what I wanted them to do. Quick in the bumps, grippy in the ice and smooth carving on the groomers. To me they were a bit heavy but the guy at the tent recommended a similar lighter version. Hmm, next demo day?


Thanks again to Alpine and Alpenglow! And all the other supporting vendors.
