Demos in Sölden - any requests?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Next weekend (Nov 8-10) and at the end of the month (Nov 20-22) I will be up on the glacier in Sölden, Austra, demoing skis. I will be concentrating on hard snow and frontside all-mountain skis mainly (up to 100 mm, roughly). Only when a storm hits and there wil be some fresh snow, I will try some wider skis too.

 

So, any requests for short impressions or comparisons? Can't ski everything, of course, and probably only the mainstream brands will be there (Salomon, Rossignol, Dynastar, Atomic, Fischer, Elan, Völkl, Scott, Stöckli, Kästle, K2, Nordica, Blizzard, Head, Line, etc.).

Skied the 95 already (indoor slope). Found them too light and sketchy on hard man-made snow. Hardly any grip, skidded all over the place. Same category as Rossi Sin & Soul 7, Salomon Q98 in that sense. Could be great in soft snow, but ONLY in soft snow. 

 

Could just be me though (1.85 m tall, 85 kg, 'lazy' skier with quite some technique, level 8)

And could be the tune. Didn't find this true at all. Skied them on very firm conditions and held well. I'll ask our rep if he had them tuned. (1.82m x 90kg, PSIA L3, race background, trying to suck less as time goes on.)
