Well, then it´s not so difficult to become the best husband in the world !
Interesting enough, my daughter got a new snowboard but she didn´t say anything about the best dad :
A pity you are not my wife: I can get some skis for free (maybe even the Dynastars) but I don´t have a wife who would be that happy getting a pair of skis :
Nevertheless, enjoy both (the best husband and your skis)!

Be careful what you wish for!!!! I was a "reluctant wife"
{in terms of skiing!}. Five years later, I was the first one to move to Colorado.

Checkracer, be happy that you live in the most beautiful city in the world!

First reluctant, then unsatiable - e perfect gradation
I would move to Colorado the first moment I could.
As a fact I hate cities and I´m not happy living where I do
I still hope spending some years to come in the Alps running a modest Pension in some Austrian resort
But thanks for the praise? Lisamarie. You been here lately?

BTW, I´m so proud to be in a noble company full of superlatives:
the allegedly World´s best husband,
the allegedly (another) World´s best husband´s wife
the World´s most beautiful city
the Dynastar skis

The Luvs are good for an occaisional pasionate fling, but the Legends can be an exclusive relationship.

Checkracer: We were in Prague and Bechyne{sp?} in 1991. As a former New Yorker/Bostonian, I am also urban phobic, yet I still have fond memories of Prague.

Lisamarie,
I´m glad you liked Prague and Bechyne (yes, your spelling was perfect) and that you have fond memories of this part of the world
Sure, Prague is a beatiful city, but living there for long you just don´t see it - sad but true.
Fortunately enough, my daughter - that with the new snowboard - loves architecture and art history. At least she is fully in place here.

Well, I don't have a spouse, but I heard yesterday as my niece unwrapped her new Rossi's that I was the best "aunt in the world".

Lisamarie:

Just a question about the Exclusive legends. My wife is an expert skier, highest level, can ski all trails in all conditions very well. She is currently on the slopes (while I stay home with the kids!....I think that might mean that I should be considered for the "World's Best Husband"!!! ) trying out some different skis to determine which she wants to buy. I recommended that she try the Exclusive Legend and the Legend 8000 (which I just bought), but she probably won't have time today. She has always been a Volkl woman and loves the 5 Stars which, I think, is a very different ski than the Exclusive Legend. She probably won't buy today and will have a chance to demo again over next weekend.

Do you have any opinion as to whether the Exclusive Legend could be a good option for someone of her ability who really attacks the mountain and generally prefers on piste, but will get off piste occasionally. Also, we live in NH, so ice is our mainstay, not pow.

Thanks for any comments.

Here's my review:
http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=21279&highlight=Dynastar+Exclusiv e+Legend

I found them to be an incredibly versatile ski. Also, while I am an intermediate skiers, Bob Peters and Mr. Crabs wife are much more advanced and they seem to like them.

Thanks Lisamarie!


My wife will probably have a chance to try them this weekend at Bretton Woods. I'll recommend that she does.

Cool! For her to really appreciate them, try to find some ungroomed snow, crud or bumps.
They will be surprisingly stable.

Thanks Lisamarie! It looks like she won't be able to try Dynastars this weekend -- not a brand the demo shop carries at Bretton Woods. She may get a chance to try it at Sunapee on January 15th. If she does and feels the same burnin' luv that you do, I'll let you know right away! Thanks for the comments.

If she feels the same way about the burnin' luvs, to paraphrase Katy Perry, "It's just a ski!"

Even in CO. the Exclusives are hard to find as a demo ski. Not sure why?:
If she finds them and she likes them, put a post on this forum. I believe there are a few Dynastar reps.

The Luvs may be better for Bretton Woods. They are a stiff ski, that were not that easily maneuvered in bumps, at least at my level of proficiency. They do love speed, so in Bretton Woods highly groomed conditions, they'll be a lot of fun!

Update for NH skier:

Yesterday, Breck conditions were pure eastern ice. My Volants would have handled the conditions better than the Legends. I was thrilled when I finally found some crud. The Legends did fine. Ironic, since I'm a terrible crud skier, but am resonably ok on ice.

Something to consider if you only ski in the East.

VERY good to know Lisamarie!! Thanks for the tip. BTW, which Volant's do you have that would have fared well on ice?

Lisamarie:


All the discussion about the Exclusives and demoing, and my wife comes down with the flu. : She wasn't able to ski all weekend (and she's still sick). Not that she missed anything on Saturday at Sunday River...terrible conditions. Sunday at Bretton Woods was nice, though.

To ease her pain, and b/c she loved the Elan Fusion Pro SX skis that she demoed a couple of weeks ago, I just bought them for her. She's psyched and is ready to attack the mountain! Your comments about the Exclusives not doing so well in eastern ice made the decision to forego the demo process a little easier. I would have liked her to try the Exclusives as I think the Legend 8000s are very good on icy conditions (and they're wider than the Exclusives), but sometimes you just have to say "what the f___!" it's time to buy some skis to call your own and have some fun with them!

Thanks again.
