Re: Scott Excursions at the resort

I can't skate 'em, at least not easily. I can get the Havocs to carve. However, I really have to think "big toe / little toe" to make it happen and keep my skis moving together. Its nothing like the alpine skiing I remember from a couple decades ago. Might not work so well on steeper runs....

I didn't start out to create that situation, it's just where I am at the moment, and the point of asking the questions here is to help sort out how much of a problem I've created for myself. Do I just gut it out an...

Can you (or anyone) please expand upon that a little? What (as specifically as possible) would I notice as an improvement on a more beginner suitable ski? Does the criticism also apply off piste?

Re: Scott Excursions at the resort

Skis: https://www.evo.com/outlet/skis/black-diamond-havoc-2009 in 176 length. I'm 5'10", 180#. G3 targa bindings, red cartridges. It feels like a lot of ski to manage with a soft boot on piste, but what do I know, I'm beginner. I'm getting down the hill in one piece, but I find it pretty hard t...

Scott Excursions at the resort

Are there any significant drawbacks to tele-skill building (from a beginner level) at the resort on a really soft boot like the Excursion?
