Introduction and thanks

Hey gang,
I found Epic Ski while researching the purchase of some new skis this week. What a great site! Just a quick note to say thank you to this community for sharing your knowledge and reviews.

Last year, to the week, I blew an ACL and meniscus in the back of Vail. I spent the summer getting back into shape for this year and had some great trips. While out at Steamboat this week I took a bad fall that I felt like I should have released from, actually tweaked my good knee pretty bad.

When I gave my  bindings a closer look, I realized my skis were actually bent - Legend 8800's - one was flat and the other had too much camber. I'm not sure if that was the result of last year's fall, the cause of Monday's fall or the result of too many trips on airliners... regardless, rather than just replacing my bindings I decided it was time for some new boards.

I spent the week demoing skis in the Boat and Vail - skied the AC50s and really liked them. Then I found the Nordica Enforcers -wow, what a ski! I also tried the Rossie SC87, the Volkl Mantras and the Nordica Hot Rods. The reviews here were invaluable since the conditions this week weren't the greatest. I wanted to make sure that I was buying something that would serve me well in better snow. I went with the Enforcers (got a great deal on the demo pair).

Thanks again - glad to be part of this community.

One of the best things about this place is the opportunity it provides to give back.
