I'd love these for my collection, but aren't worth 175 to me, I will stick to the older stuff.
UNH kids are crazy, do remember. A handful of them will be USST when they graduate this year, so a high DIN like that seems reasonable.
Have you skiied on the Chief SG/DH course? The speeds there get insane, esp with the downward winds. I remember a SG that I ran there last year and I was going the same speed, if not faster than I reached in the Sugarloaf DH's.
I'd take em, but I already have a pair, lol. $175 seems a tad steep too. I got mine for $60 barely used.
