I think you'll be very, very surprised.
I put my Atomic SLs back on a couple of years ago at A Basin early season. These were the ice-carving wonders I bought in 1988 while working at Helm of Sun Valley--in San Jose, CA. When I skied them in early '03, I thought I was going to kill someone--either me or someone I couldn't avoid on the hill. Holy smokes, they took a lot more work than modern skis.
That's the last time. I'm never going back again.
Want my old Elan GSs? They're 210s. Up in my attic at the moment.
