Wife let me get a pair of new turny slalom-esque skis on clearance to use on the locals hills with the kids. My GS skis were far too much for the 300' vert.

Great performance , tecnica design is outstanding

Will you be on new skis this year? - Page 3post #61 of 12210/5/12 at 11:25ampost #62 of 12210/5/12 at 11:37ampost #63 of 12210/5/12 at 11:45ampost #64 of 12210/6/12 at 5:31pm
Sort of. I bought new skis last season but then Elan made me an offer I couldn't refuse so I picked up a pair of Apexes and recently got some Head RFD 14 railflex bindings for them. I'll ski them 2-3 times just to see how they are but they are actually for my son. He only has a pair of Rossi Z3s but discovered that he loves trees and powder after I rented a pair of Rossi SC87s for him last year. This is cheaper than renting high end skis when he comes home from college at Christmas.post #65 of 12210/6/12 at 11:59pmpost #66 of 12210/7/12 at 4:18pmpost #67 of 12210/12/12 at 1:19pmpost #68 of 12210/12/12 at 5:20pmpost #69 of 12210/12/12 at 6:22pmQuote:
sounds soooo sick. super versatile.post #70 of 12210/12/12 at 7:07pm
I got a brand new pair of Head X Shape STX's in a 163. It has a 68mm waist and a 11.1m turning radius, it should be perfect ski for my home hill which is always icy and only has 360 vertical feet.
On a different note a saw some snow in the air today! Hell Ya!post #71 of 12210/12/12 at 10:33pm
I will be switching between some Rossignol S3's that I bought last season yet I rarely used because I got to use the rental shops S3's that I was working at so I got to save the wear and tare on them and I will also be using some used Rossignol Experience 83 that I bought from the shop as well. I hope to get at least 75 days of skiing in this winter at Telluride and other ski resorts within Colorado.post #72 of 12210/13/12 at 5:07am
Yes, sort-of. I finally mounted a set of Look P14 bindings on the '10 K2 Extremes I've been keeping in reserve. They will be my go-to ski once rock ski season is over. The base on my '05-06 K2 PEs is only about 2-3mm thick at this point, so it is time for a change.
I also mounted a pair of '11 Dynastar Twister mogul skis with Solly Z12 Ti bindings. This is my first pair of mogul-specific skis and I'm looking forward to trying them out when the conditions are right. I'll probably take them to Sugarbush and Killington where some of the bump lines are a bit tighter than what I regularly encounter. Notably, the "seeded bumps" at K-mart, and some of the bump lines on Spillsville (between Organgrinder and Ripcord) at Sugarbush.

On fresh days will be riding for the first time, ebay 2011 S7's that were supposedly only used about a dozen times. And due to the droughty season just had a few days last year on a new pair of 2011 Twisters. Same thing for my Lange RS 110's. So will be discovering quite a lot about how my skiing will be in following seasons.post #75 of 12210/14/12 at 10:42am
At this point I will not be starting the season with new skis Then again, I've only had two seasons with my daily driver and only used my carving skis for 2-3 runs.
First, new footbeds and a tuning set up and learn to use it.
Then, if I get the new job I'm hoping to, I will look at new skis. I hate being prudent, really hate it.post #76 of 12210/14/12 at 11:02ampost #77 of 12210/14/12 at 4:56pmpost #78 of 12210/14/12 at 5:00pmpost #79 of 12210/14/12 at 5:20pmpost #80 of 12210/14/12 at 6:41pmpost #81 of 12210/14/12 at 6:45pmpost #82 of 12210/15/12 at 6:02am
Being that I bought 2 pairs of skis last season, I will not buy new skis this year, I will not buy new skis this year, I will not buy new skis this year......
Just step away from the ski wall and move along. Nothing to see here.

I just decided to forego the 186 Lhasas and went with the 2013 Billy Goats. The RES concept is too much for me to ignore and the whole package sounds right up my alley. I even ponied up and got the tour core, hybrid layup with the wood veneer topsheets, well, because I'm a shameless gear whore and coudn't stop myself.
SO far beyond stoked I'm having trouble expressing it in words. Can't wait to quiverkill them with the utmost care and attention to detail and then ski them like I stole them.post #85 of 12210/15/12 at 11:10ampost #86 of 12210/15/12 at 1:24pmQuote:
Ah-ha a bro! I painted my Twisters last year to get rid of the punk graphics and after buying the ebay S7's recently painted over the boring black graphics with the left S7 sort of aqua blue-green and the right ski orange-hot pink. Put down a luminescent strontium aluminate paint which is over a white base coat so they glow all night in my living room. After the first day of skiing which is likely only a few weeks away, will take some pics then start a thread here about painting skis.post #87 of 12210/15/12 at 2:45pmpost #88 of 12210/15/12 at 4:26pmpost #89 of 12210/15/12 at 5:16pmQuote:
