Thanks for the info. I've seen the racks of older skiis for under 50 bucks but they seem to be the early radically shaped skiis. I'll have to get to Salt Lake and check out some of the bigger stores.
The Dynastar Intuitive 74 has been on my list to demo this year for awhile. Problemo is... WE HAVE NO SNOW!!!!!
: Nobody is letting thier demos out the door behind Ogden (Snowbasin or Powder Mountain) for very good reason. I've got lines on buying Salomon products and Dynastar products at a good price and wanted to compare some of what they have to what I have (like the Xscream 10 pilot and 1080). I've kind of taken that the XScream is not much different than my Skicross 66's, maybe the same for the Intuitive 71. I wanted something that would feel alot different than my current ski and be better in powder and bumps. My solution was "OK buy some Pocket Rockets for deep stuff (pipe dream this year...deep stuff that is), some 74's for all mountain bombing (unless they would take care of my powder skiing and mogul skiing combined??? The BIG question), and some cheap mogul boards for days of just bumping (but I've never tried the true bumpers)...of course I won't be able to afford anything but top ramen, even with deep discounts on the boards, but what the heck...after 8 years of bad marriage (she hated snow, so she eventually had to go) facing a d three hour drive to the nearest lift I'm just happy to be back in the vicinity of skiing at will.[ January 16, 2003, 03:02 PM: Message edited by: toona ]
