    This is what anyone should do but unfortunately it's one of those, "I get it" moments that typically happens right at the transition from intermediate to expert. It's a leap in skill advancement and...

    My thoughts:

    It's not the skis, it's the bindings that should justify a replacement. 10 years is too long, especially if they're still adjusted to settings from 10 years ago.

    As for the skis,...

    Bill,

    This is a quiver thread and this would be my weapon of choice for powder days in New England, out west and in Europe. My everyday cruiser is the Experience 88 which is 88mm underfoot. ...

    Meaning you already bought them?

    So you asked advice, took absolutely none of it, and want to know what we think of your not listening to any of us?

    If you look at my signature you'll see I'm...

    Rossi experience 88. Last year's air tip model is cheap. They're fun on the groomers but wide enough for those 1/2 dozen powder days.

    I'll ramp up to 3 days a week or more starting tomorrow. New Years Day has been day 1 a lot of seasons for me since I quit instructing.

    I think I got lucky and didn't pull the trigger on the Experience 88 at the end of last season. Instead I pulled it last month and got the 2015 version with the Air Tip. This is honestly the...

    I don't get sick of it but I certainly lose interest. Mid-season there isn't much that will stop me from skiing every weekend and often 3-day weekends. Early season I'll sometimes bail knowing that...
