What's everyone skiing on this year?

What's everyone skiing on this year? All mountain and back country I'm skiing a second season on my Scott punishers. For Slalom I picked up a new pair of volkl race tigers. I hope this season it actually snows.

I have wanted the volkl mantras for two years, as they are a great one ski quiver, but I decided to go with a small volume shop, as I tend to support the "little guy". I picked up the bluehouse MR, and will mount some AT bindings. If I don't like them I will also pickup some mantras and mint them as traditional alpine.

Burton Custom X or Burton Balance from back in the day that I still love. Both have Cartel bindings.

I'm still on my '03 170cm Fischer RC4 WC SC. They really make a small mountain fun. But my increasing age combined with limited runs over the last few years have me considering a lazier all mountain type ski.

This is why I always have a set of twin tips. End of the day and a couple beers later I like to get lazy and my race skis dont allow me to do so.

Deck: Running a 162 Lib Tech Skunk Ape. Good all around board but I might look at a true twin (not that I am all that riding switch, but do like to change things up). Thinking something from Rome (Waterbury represent!) or maybe stay with the Mervin stuff (I do like me some magnatraction).

Bindings: Rome 390s from 4 years ago. They are pretty stiff and broken in and work. Will keep them for a little longer. I don't think binding tech has gotten all that much better save for rear entry stuff like Flow or GNU.

Boots: DC with Boa but don't remember model. Only 1 year old but I might look to go back to Vans. Even for snowboarding I think boots are the most important piece.

Softgoods: Flylow shell I got on sale last season. Small cool company that is skier/rider owned from what I have seen.

Flylow is a nice company, and seems to do well. I have their work gloves.

They are from the Pacific Northwest I believe.

Amazingly it is is really easy to buy bindings and skis and gear made in USA. Probably not boots.

A lot of the low tech, low production powder skis are made in the US. There are a few custom boot companies, but not anything for the average skier.

I tried monoskiing in the late 90s. At the time i felt the idea of one big ski vs two thinner ones was interesting.

I dislocated my shoulder though after my guidance and stability circuitry failed while monoskiing. I gave it up and have not gone back.

Hopefully technology has caught up with the concept and made it safe. I have not tried skiing on my face as Bill recommends but i hear it may be at the next X-games.
