Thread Starter 
I know there is some overlap between TGR and epicski but like last year I want to make sure we spread the word here as well.

We want to thank everyone for all their feedback and input which helped confirm the pricing scheme we had in mind.

The prices are broken up into 3 categories and will be posted on our website. We are also selling Look/Dynastar bindings through our site and have created special package pricing when bundled with a pair of skis. You can find more info about our skis at http://bluehouseskis.com/

every additional pair of skis added to an order will receive a $25 discount.
ie. 3 pairs of Mavens = ($374 X 3) - $50 discount(2 extra pairs) = $1072



Updates:

I forget that not everyone has been following the different threads over the weeks so I'll try and keep up with questions on here.

First, the sale will be on our website www.bluehouseskis.com . It will run for 2 weeks but we don't recommend waiting that long. Last year we sold out of our popular skis in about 1 week.

We ship anywhere in the world as long as you pay the shipping. We will have a rate calculator during the checkout process for domestic and international orders.

The Shoots have an almost flat tail. One of the mouse over icons on our site says otherwise so we are updating that today. I'm attaching profile picks of the Mavens and Shoots below.

Bindings can be purchased separately on the site

For those that rode our skis last year here are the changes that have been made.
MR - we stiffened up the MR slightly. Especially in the tail. It will still be a playful ski for perfect for the park but it now has more all mountain versatility.
District- As requested the District is a stiff ski. We added some titanal and adjusted the core profile to increase stiffness throughout with most of it going underfoot and in the tail.
We added better topsheet materials to improve the look and reduce chipping.

Wow...some good prices here. Have not ridden these skis but have heard good things. Interesting marketing idea to bundle a quiver of skis together and offer at a significant discount. Very cool!

I think Trek Chic has a pair of Misters. Hey Trek--any comments?

I have the MR171's from last year. Have a lot of fun on them, but was a bit disappointed in the construction of them when they arrived. They were base high and required a significant base grind before they were skiable.
I talked with one other bear who bought the districts who didn't like them much, so I suggested that he do a similar base grind, but never heard back if that worked out.

I had the MR's at Breck on a powder day back in January. Wow, they were fun!

I bought some Districts. I don't regret buying them. They were hard to figure out where to mount as there is the huge difference between the freeride and powder lines on the skis. The powder line is ridiculously back. I ended up mounting mine 1 CM behind the free line and probably should have gone 2 or 3 CM back since I only use them for deep powder.

The Districts are fun once you figure them out. Once I got used to them I liked them better than Gotamas because they have more feel and more pop. These are not a big mountain ski. They have a moderate flex which combined with their width make them a great deep snow ski, but not one you can ski at mach skis. I do wish they had a bigger tip.

I've got the MR179s. I originally had them mounted with Railflex 1 cm. behind the freeride line and found I didn't like them. After pushing them back a further 1.5 cm. behind the freeride line, it was much more comfortable. They floated nicely through fresh powder during the Bear Gathering in UT. I had some problems getting pressure on the front of the ski when skiing on hard-pack with the binding that far back, although the ski would hold and finish the turn just fine.

Maybe that's what he should try.
Got to admit, The MR's are tons of fun, but as you say, not a big mountain ski due to an interesting flex pattern, but they make a fun powder day ski.

Rio and Batgirl, check out the pics of my MRs on comparison to the Bros and SL's for mounting point.

I too skied the Districts last year and had to figure out the mount line. I went 1cm back from the Freeride and loved them - but then again I'd rather have a little forward mount for ease of turn in trees and tight chutes.

I skied mine mostly backcountry and loved them for pow but as for rippin' through chop at the resort it admitedly wasn't a strong point especially for a guy that is 200lbs.

To that end this year's District is much more stable and able to put the hurt on chop and will hold much much better while going mach. The MR got a little bit of torsional stiffness to the tail which will help it hold on carves but keep it light (carbon fiber) and "poppy".

Thanks Trek and others for the honest feedback. That's what we love to hear - it helps us make a better ski.

powstash -

I hope you didn't tweak with the District too much. One reason I really liked them is they are not macho speedmachines. I rarely ski powder at mach speeds due to the steep tight terrain at Bridger Bowl along with its tendency to get flat light on powder days. The Districts allow me to get into places others avoid on their big mountain skis. (I also tend to be drawn to the big powder/crud moguls that develop there which the Districts do just fine in.) 90% of the skiers I see on big mountain behemoths would be better off on something like the District or Gotama.

Agree on the Districts.

They handled powder and softish snow really nicely for me last year. They are much softer flex than my Volkls.

Speed - not so much on that one it was too soft. Things got real chattery at high speed even in the snow. I wasn't all that impressed with the bases - extruded. But once I got a nice tune @ Snowbird they performed alot better. It's a decent ski in snow though - nice and light and a lot of fun. Just don't expect to carve well even on western snow especially if it's groomed.
