So I've been reading the forums on Pugski for the last 4 months and finally signed up. So much good info.
42 years old, recently re-addicted to skiing and ski equipment. When I was a kid and through HS, allI could think about was skiing and watching the weather report. Once mom/dad stopped paying for lift tickets and when I went off to college (and after) I would go years without skiing, and if lucky MIGHT get 3 days in a year if I got any.
I've been skiing on 2004 K2's until this year when I got a chance to try some modern technology (Stockli SR88's in 177) and that's when I wondered "what have I been missing all these years?" I was instantly re-addicted to skiing. Literally invested 20+ hours researching skis in the last 4 months.
About me: 5'11", 225lbs. strong intermediate. 60-70% on piste. Ski mainly north Tahoe area (Squaw, Alpine, Homewood).
