About me: CSIA level 2, skiing around a low 8.
I'm taking the level 1 CSCF (Canadian ski coaching federation) course next week. The "welcome" mass mailing advised:
My current two ski quiver includes some sloppy old x-wing 10s, which I can easily bend to any turn shape, but can't ski at speed anymore (the foam's noodled out). I also have some Head peak 82s, which I can ski at quite high speeds in long and medium radius turns, but I'm finding short radius turns a bit belaboured on these skis. The turning radius is ~19m on these. They're all mountain-y, rather than hardpack skis.
Any recommendations on a nice ski for this course? Supershapes would be my first choice to try, but they simply aren't available in Whistler. (Some kind of supply problem in north america.) Any alternatives?
