Finally I got to ski. El nino seems to keep things warmer in my region and ski season starts late. It has been a tough year around here for skiing so far. Anyway, I enjoy a beautiful sunny day trying out my new Volkl RTMs and they are wonderful. I think the length is good for me. I have only skied them one day, but so far so good. I like how they handle crud and mixed surfaces. I do need to get used to them. They are different than what I am used to.
