I own a pair of Volkl G3 177cm skis, which I loved for the first two season I skied them. Two years ago, I found them basically unskiable. Turns were very hard to initiate in any kind of conditions but particularly bad on softer snow. The skis were tuned at my usual shop that year and supposedly to the same specs I had been skiing for the previous two years. I also lost about 15-20 pounds between seasons and cut my ski days from 30+ per year to less than half that. My inital thought was it was simply too much ski for my lesser weight and rusty skills, but now I wonder if a bad tune could be contributing? Any thoughts, suggestions? Most of my skiing is on small midwestern hills with one week out west each year. I can try another shop but its quite a haul unless this is likely to be a tuning issue.
