Old School vs. New School

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I was skiing at the end of May at Snowbird and couldn't resist taking this picture of my old K2's in contrast to some newer K2's. The dimensions are:

K2 610 = 83 - 65 - 73
K2 Pontoon = 160 - 130 - 120

Just a small difference.

whats really funny is niether were a great ski for that day. Although I would rather have smearable no edge catch able Pontoon in the spring time.

dont you have contacts now? Wouldnt you ski those all the time over those K2s.

Old school!

Those Pontoons look like adaptive gear. There is nothing wrong with using a wheelchair, unless you can walk.

I don't want to insult anyone who needs skis that are wider than my Teleboard, my heart goes out to you. You guys are an inspiration to able-bodied skiers like myself.

You guys call that snowpack? We won't see dirt like that in Oregon until July.

Now I get why graphics have become such an influence and controversy. The difference between hopscotch chalk on the sidewalk vs massive graffiti on the whole freakin side of a 2 story brick building !

No, actually I just demoed the Contacts. I am actually trying to decide what skis to buy. Thinking of something like a Watea 84 and then something over 100mm for the deep. Any suggestions?

The dirt you see is above the parking lot. The skiing is to my back. Does it snow in OR?
