The question was brought up in Review Thread and it got me thinking. To reiterate, I have said that there are very few bad but more wrong skis but it but it got me thinking, it is even getting to the point that there are less and less wrong skis. Really good skis have not so much added more high end performance but the best ones are adding more and more versatility and the ability to access to terrain for more skiers. Simply, the sweet spots on some skis have gotten so big that anyone with a fair amount of skill could get on them and have fun.
Skis have gotten so good that their performance window goes past just an expert or intermediate or charger or whatever "label" you want to put on them and to an extent they can become a victim of their own success that some skiers don't take them seriously. Skiing is supposed to be fun and when did "easy" become a four letter word what it comes to ski design?
