I am beginning to prepare for my two week-long ski vacations this winter (it's hard being a native of ski country transplanted to FL) when suddenly I have became concerned about my equipment. My question is this: I'm 44 years old, strong skier (though I have noticed my skills beginning to decline a little after age 40) who has been skiing for about 35 years. I generally ski about 50% on the groomers and 50% off-piste. I'm about 5'7" tall and have been skiing a Rossi Bandit XX for the past few years, and have really loved the ski. However over the summer I made a concerted effort to get back into good physical condition. I was about 168 lbs. and have lost nearly 20 lbs. Now at 5'7" and 149 lbs. Should I be concerned about being able to ski on this ski after dropping this much weight? I don't want to spend one of my two precious weeks of skiing fighting my equipment. Any thoughts? I can't possibly be the first person to face this dilemma.
