Yup, indoor.
Have just been advised that the Radical Freerides are coming with touring bindings. I've been challenged to skin up the slope!

Duh, you wrote it in the orginal post... I can't read.

I'm also starting to realize I've listed mid-fats or fat skis, definitely unsuitable for the venue. Oh, well. Have fun !

Where are you skiing anyway?

OK.......two questions.

1) Is this a ramp or a rotating deck?
2) What will you be trying to discern or accomplish?

I'm going to the one in Milton Keynes.

There is a test in Castleford in July, and one in Braehead in August.

Welllll.........given the situation and conditions, you should test powder skis. (We need more reports on those)............
