speaking of snowboard companies making skis, i finally saw my first pair of LIB N.A.S (narrow a$$ snowboards) up close and personal at a shop here in the Bay Area.http://www.lib-tech.com/
the owner of the shop has them in his 3-ski quiver (which also consists of a pair of Explosivs and a pair of R:EX's). He said they rip and keep a good edge. The edge is the trippy part as it's wavy and what i think they call "magnatraction" or something like that. the owner said he took them down Baldy chute in Alta and they were great. I can't recall now what ski he rotated out and replaced with the NAS, but again, he said they were a pretty solid set of skis. he got me intrigued enough to want to try them and see how they compare to the Bros (they have similar dimensions, what with being 99 underfoot).
