steve, thanks for the tips on instructors at big sky. i'll ask for them when i sign up tomorrow for lessons on march 19, 2006.....i hope they are available. 2 friends and i want private lessons for level 7 or 8 carving. my wife wants level 6 carving lessons and hopes to find 2 more women to share the costs. i have metron m:10's with nordica speedmachine 12's and my wife has metron m:8's with nordica gts 10 w boots.
as an aside (sort of), i know from reading many posts that your are knowledgeable about the metrons, as are others on this list. how stable are the metron m:10's at speed?
