eh yeah totally agreed I run GS or SL gates every weekend.
The B5 are one of the most durable skis I have had pleasure of owning, sure the edgesget dulled but they are built like tanks. The bases take alot to get a core shot, the majority of the time you can ski right over dead fall with nothing more than surface scratches. The edges will need tuned before the deep freeze this friday night down here in PA, after the warm up.
On the psia comment. I am just saying that down here on my home mountian the general conseses of my "high ups" is that groomed skiing is the only thing around, and tree skiing is too risky to yourself and equiment. I say I ski to have fun and that the most fun for me. I take all the precaution I think I should, and go rip. I allways seek out the "best" or "worst"(it depend on your piont of view). I know this will make some of the patrols mad, but down here in PA. I ski closed runs cause what makes them closed is what makes them interesting and fun to myself. Bare spots, gaps over bare spots, shitty ass snow, and chutes created by lack of snow, are all much more fun to ski than groomed black or blue run down here.
With that said I will have more video soon probably from Blue Knob, PA in like a week or so.
