    A large thread about this is on the PugSki forum

    To start with, I love my old Volkl Kendo’s. 89mm waist, 163 length. Short, I know, but I wanted an all mountain ski that would turn more like a slalom ski when on edge, rather than the normal GS turn...

    Yes, absolutely.

    One could say I wasted $120 on a couple of demo days in Utah, or, more accurately, that I saved $700 because I did not buy the skis I thought I wanted without trying them out...

    Edge to edge on a groomer would probably have been fine. I don’t ski that way if at all possible. I was in Utah skiing trees, soft bumps, some powder and lots of chop. My turns are often quick...

    When I demoed wider skis this year I was shocked at how much heavier and slower to turn the wider skis were. Even going from 90 to 100 under foot was a huge difference to me. I ended up preferring...

    Thanks. Another question. Any opinions on Van Winkles restaurant? Would it even be open for a midweek lunch? Are there other options besides the standard base lodge cafeteria?

    Well, since you asked ... I am always looking for nice zipper lines. I find skiing good bumps to be as much fun as fresh powder. And I find anything much over 90mm underfoot to be a serious hindrance...

    Quick question, probably for Funky_Catskills. Is their a ticket agent at Hunter North during the week? The trail map says yes, but I would hate to park there, boot up, and then find out I have to go...

    My bet is you got charged the standard oversized bag rate rather than the special sporting goods rate. Skis, golf clubs, etc. are supposed to have different rules. I would be calling United and...

    Too many years ago, when I was in charge of the equipment for our college ski club, we had a professional style rack that hung the skis by their tips. Typical slot between 2 pieces of wood. Over the...

    Go to Killington and spend a day or two demoing everything you can from their shop at Snowshed. Only $50 a day and you can apply it to a purchase if you like. You swap out skis as often as you like....

    Good point. The reason I have for being cautious about fatter skis is the potential drawback in bumps or tight trees.

    I was mistaken, my old Volkl Kendos are 89mm, not 85mm, so that helps a...

    What do people think about this? Sounds like my 85mm waist Kendos may not be worth bringing out west, but how do the fat boys handle the trees and bumps?

    If we can hide a gatorade or beer for the day while we ski, then why not a comfy pair of shoes/boots for the stairs? Every eastern skiing ought to experience the Killington stairs at least once!
