Re: One ski to rule them all! A one ski quiver for all disciplines

This setup can do everything. It¨s about simplicity. Going on a-b trips and having a setup that just deals with ev...

Re: One ski to rule them all! A one ski quiver for all disciplines

Once again, I should probably just stay quiet and go do something productive… The soapbox is now available … I think it kind of goes both ways a bit? :D Indeed.

Re: One ski to rule them all! A one ski quiver for all disciplines

Once again, I should probably just stay quiet and go do something productive… Really, this has gone a bit too far. mikael.oh is a real person. He is in the room. We are all real people.

“Best” Telemark Ski for Rockies and West Coast

Re: One ski to rule them all! A one ski quiver for all disciplines

I also do want to point out that an average skiier can get disillusioned into thinking they can pick up a pair of Gammes and leathers and just start shredding down the mountain in red underwear. lol I need to change my plans for tomorrow — would blue underwear make any difference?
