Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I am looking at the Icelandic 109 in the 182cm length. the 20/21 design is very cool, but I'm ok with last years design for $200 less.

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I like the graphics on the Armadas. very cool. I need to get over my mental block on skis the width of "water skis". I also need to come to terms with longer skis...

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I live on the east coast but don't really ski in the east anymore( I grew up in VT skiing ice). I am looking for 1 pair of skis that I will use out west. this winter is Montana, but in the future could be Utah, Wyoming, Colorado etc. so the more I think about it, what I need are skis for out west. i...

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

the Advantage 95 is what I have now. they are completely delaminated on both tails, but I like the width and shape. I like that apsinockwoods website because things are on sale and I can order a ski/binding combo mounted.

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

damn, I thought I had this sorted out.... basically all my skiing is in the west now, but I need 1 ski that is good for powder and packed snow. fortunately my days of east coast ice are behind me. I think the vantage with the outlaws was about $850 mounted. I could spend more if there was a good rea...

Re: Ahahahaha....I'm going tele skiing in Feb!!

I still will need to "work from home" during the day, but being 2 hours behind the east coast, afternoons should be fair game.... right now I am leaning towards the Atomic Vantage 97 in a 172cm length with 22 Design Outlaw X. I think I need an all mountain ski since I will own 1 pair, and prob shoul...
