But if I started on the Dynastars I did fine-on the groomed anyway. The Powerkarves were in a whole other league when the snow got deep or choppy.
Anyway, the skis go older, I got older. Then I got a pair of Volkl Vectris for hard snow, or for a change. The Dynastars got mighty lonely after that. I like variety in my skis, but I now have it among my shaped skis. Then my wife insisted I clean out "behind the waterheater" and guess what went first? I gave the old kids skis to a local ski shop for their kids program. I am a packrat at heart, but there are limits.
Hopefully we can ski together some day. You ever come out to Colorado? Let me know if you do. LewBob
