You better remain 49 for a while else your binding settings will go down. I lied about my age when I got my new skis mounted. I also did something last weekend that I said I'd never do. Crank my binding din up to 11 so my skis wouldn't come off in the deep stuff.

If it holds snow-It can be skied!

Your right Lars, I might just have to be 49 for a few more years . I ask the tech what my setting would be at age 50 and it went from a Din 8 to 6.5! At the start of the year I set them lower Untill I am feeling good on my skies again, now back up to 8. I do value my knees, so 8 is top end for me.
however I have been reviewing matrial from the Vermount Ski safty Institute to reduce the risk of Knee injury.

post #13 of 151

I'm 5'9, 16 yro, and live in the Portland, maine area. What does a 8, or a 7 mean on the psia scale? Is there a website that describes what each number means.

My ability is bretty good- race high school, ski GS turns down EASTERN double blacks, not western. Can ski everything at Big Sky. Steep bumps are harder though!

I'm 46, 6', about 230. Started skiing at about 28, probably a high 6 - 7 level skier, which ain't bad for a big, old (dinosaur accordin' to the kids) guy.

Live in Calgary

ski Louise, Panorama, Kimberly most, also skied Nakiska, Fortress, Norquay, Sunshine, Fairmont, Fernie, Big White, Silver Star, Big Mountain, and as mentioned elsewhere, the Winnipeg Floodway!

Won't list my gear, other than what Phil calls Ol' Flexon Comps (due to be replaced soon). Having two growing kids puts a cramp in the equipment budget! Next year though!

Love the sport!

I like a lot of the same stuff as Lars, but if the wife sees herself referred to as a FBG, I'm toast.
