^^^ Oh lol! Im sorry im not real big on all the modern ski terminology. When you guys say "wide" i guess you mean "fat" ??? Cuss we always called wide skis fat skis in my day.
Well on a separate note then, and going along with what I was saying OT, there was coincidently an article in my local paper today from a Ski Patroller who works our local mountain here in Wausau. She said this:
"As equipment has improved, snowboarders and skiers are looking for faster and more difficult ways to get down the hill. Injuries are becoming more dramatic. I am seeing more and more back and head injuries."
So I guess this particular ski patroller anyways, agrees with my assumption that shaped skis are making less capable skiers take chances they wouldn't have taken on longer, straighter skis.
LOL but of course that is OT.
