For the love of skinny skis

18 Feb

I finally got my old skis tuned up and bindings adjusted to fit my new (but used) boots. It is quite startling how good I felt on my old skis. Last year I went skiing and rented a set of new skis. They were short, wide and meant for turning I was assured by the rental clerk. Well they turned but I had no confidence in them. At speed they wobbled. The turns were vague at best. I did not get that bite into the slope feel that I did with the old skis. Now, I have the old skis back and skiing is much better. I tuned up my older shorter skis, 175cm, and will get my 198cm skis ready when I go hit a really big hill.
