Thanks, I would appreciate your comments.
I'm not much for exercising at home - never have been. That's why I took so well to endurance sports. I lift weights, but not at home. I do that while swimming - The Coors Fitness Center has a 50 meter pool, gym, climbing wall, etc.
I've been exercising since 1983. So, I'm finicky in my training. What I really like about this board is that it fits in my gym bag. I can take it to the gym and use it.
On skiing, I just think that there's a very small percentage of skiers that approach skiing with a "training" mindset. Like most skiers I see drink a beer at lunch. Would Rob Decostella stop for a beer on a run? I don't think so.
They're just not serious athletes and they're not fanatics about fitness like you and I are. I think, at most, 1 out of 10 skiers on the hill is what I would call serious about the sport.
It's like with the cult. Harald and Diana are not positioning it for Joe Skier on vacation from Nebraska. They're target customers are ski instructors and people like you and I.
