Much has been written about the Renoun Endurance 98 since its original incarnation two or so years ago. Back then, it was bordering on being a short-wheelbase twin tip; Version 2.0 kept the same 121-98-115 dimensions and 20.5m turn radius but had somewhat less rise in the tip and significantly less in the tail. And now we will be talking about Version 3.0. Yes, the Endurance 98 is still evolving, with a new shape, flex, profile, and scaled sizing for 2019.
While I liked the first two versions of the Endurance 98, I wasn’t smitten with them like I am with the Z-90....

Here is a story from CBCNews:
Ski ballet is having a moment.
Videos from the late 1980s and early 1990s, when ski ballet was a demonstration sport — along with moguls and aerials — at the Calgary Winter Olympics and then again at the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, are going viral.
Former Olympian Suzy Chaffee, who was an NBC alpine events commentator at the 1988 Games in Calgary, thinks now is exactly the right time to bring it back to the Winter Olympics, 26 years after it was shelved.
"Ski ballet is dancing down the mountains, embracing the mountains, poetry on skis," Chaffee said in a recent interview with CBC's Shannon Scott — and she would know.

When is your DIN number not your DIN number? When it is not a DIN number. Confused? Well, for years we have been calling binding settings "DIN numbers," but that's not what they are. Take a look at any chart and see what it says: "Indicator Settings." Except for Salomon, the charts don't even say DIN (which is an acronym that denotes the German Institute for Standardization). We have all just assumed these were DIN settings. For many years I wondered, "If DIN is the actual standard, why are there variations in binding adjustment charts?" Well, because they are not DIN settings. There is not a standardized binding adjustment chart, and these numbers are actually indicator settings.
Will this revelation have an effect on your day-to-day skiing life? No. Will or should you do anything different in setting your bindings? No. Is this some interesting stuff? Yeah. I know, mind blown. Your binding setting is actually based off of...
We need a dedicated thread.
Go ahead and post live results in this thread. do not read this thread if you don't want to know. It is simply too complicated between NBC's broadcast prime time, posters living From Australia/NZ, Japan, to the PNW, and the ability to live stream.
Note, PyeongChang is 14 hrs ahead of US Eastern Time. So, a 10:00am start in Korea is 8pm ET, 7 CT, 6MT, 5PT the previous day.
So, shackles are off! Post results!
I kind of can't believe he hasn't mentioned this in a post yet, so congratulations to JM for getting selected to the pSIA-E Development team this week. He and 5 other instructors from Stowe were among 19 added to the team this year. @Nate Gardner was one of the selectors (though he did not score any of the candidates from Stowe).
