The last time I skied I was skiing with some folks on older gar so we decided to check out the Freestyle Demo Tent at Wintergreen. I was happy with the Head SS iWC SL but am in the market for a longer GS ski. Though there was plenty to choose from in the SL, All Mountain,and a few twin tip models, I didn't see a single GS ski or anything longer than a 178, period. Rather than complain like a curmudgeon, I just said I don't see anything that interests me and waited patiently while my ski buds tried some of he SLs and All Mountain models. We went back twice so I doubt it was just a matter of the GS and longer skis being all in use. Is this typical to have SL skis but no GS skis at demo tents? I suppose they don't want to arm people with really fast skis, or is the demand for GS skis simply a lot flatter than the demand for SL? I'd think that more folks would be using GS skis than SL in beer league and team racing, but what do I know anyway?
