I feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle. Cleaning out the attic I found two new pairs of skis that I bought after my last knee operation in the mid 90s, I had not skied since. The skis are set of 205 Fishers and 200 cm K2s. I'm too old, fat and weak kneed to ski any more, a ligament in my knee mended but it is stretched so I have a wobbly knee, but the wife says I ought to try. I see on ebay all short fat skis. I think nobody can get any speed with those little things, then turn on the Olympics that watch the down hills folks setting new records with fat little skis. When I skied I skied more off trail then Piste only because I had strong legs and a weak mind. Now I only have a weak mind. So my question is am I still allowed on the slopes with skinny skis and are Look Nevada bindings still allowed. I'm probably going to be sking on the Bunny Hill with the little girls.
