Some French invention of the 1960-70ís I think. It got popular for a little while in Europe, but because of the difficulty and injuries it disappeared pretty fast. I just know if from my dad who had one. And I love it since it is a challenge and people always think I am handicapped. So it gets me in the front of the line for the lifts every time haha.

Kastle MX 88's. Very pumped to start skiing here in MI. Also, I just attached my Yakima ski rack today to my SD roof rack (with some rigging). Now all I need is snow!

I;m sporting 158 lib tech Skunk Ape, with old skool drake bindings that fit like an old pair of gloves, and older Ride boots that are in severe need of replacing as I have already shoe gooed, and gorilla glued together for two seasons but they are like old tennis shoes I can board all day and then hit the bar and before I know it I'm dancing in those boots and have no foot pain I need a pair of boots like these (minus the glue) any suggestions?? I was thinking of Nike anyone out there try them yet??

Anyone have a pair of 170-180cm skis they're looking to part with? Got into skiing last year and wanna get my own gear instead of renting again

I have a pair of Kahru Spire BC's that are 177 and only have a handful of days on them if you are interested. No bindings and only mounted once. Ski was made for the BC but preforms exceptionally well on the groomers.

just got done with day 2 at snowbird. first day was alright, mostly base + what fell the previous weekend - so they closed a lot of runs. saturday evening we got a good 8 inches on the front runs and something like 20 inches of fresh powder and gropple above 10k feet. today was a great powder day on blacks. double blacks were closed but the back bowl was a LOT of fun

i was rocking 35 dollar salomon rentals and although i had a good time in them, they are way too narrow to be a powder ski. i guess i will go with demos next time.

K2 Obsethed. This is a great ski for all terrain. Of course, it's great in powder, but also very easy to turn quickly in trees and carves fairly well on the groomers. Anyone skiing Telluride this year?

Rocking the SD rack and Yakima mounts with still no snow here in MI. Makes me wonder that if I didn't put the rack on would there be a blizzard?
