Wow. That's all I have to say. I finally decided to stop renting/leasing skis and bought a whole new setup (Dynastar Legend 8000's, Nordica boots). Went out yesterday for my first turns on my new skis and it was unbelievable, even in early spring Vermont "snow". The skis felt awesome, boots fit like a glove, and I felt as if I skied like a million bucks. Now I just wish I had bought sooner and that winter would stick around for a few more months. Scenery was awesome to boot. Crystal clear skies and a classic Vermont sunset.
