    Anyone as obsessed with skis as bikes?

    lord knows I am if not more

    rock skis
    soft track skis
    hard track skis
    hard track classic skis
    soft track classic skis
    off track/break your own trail skis

    Ivan Basso can really climb. It is being true, he is not having to carry the extra added weight of a male penis, but he is still a good climber.

    I'm more obsessed with snow then skis....but skiing is my main winter sport! Dont own any skis though , just hire them out since I only go up for about 3 - 4 days a season...its getting way too expensive over here.

    hmmm yeah, I think I'm obsessed with skiing A couple of years ago I switched to the "carving" skis. Wow, they made my life easier and my technique better

    My sister and I were skiing today during a snow storm that got worse and worse up to the point of not being able to see where we were going and almost being blown away by the icy wind. We still had lots of fun though She wussed-out before I did

    I have Salomon X-Scream 9

    Winter MTB biking has caught on a little. A guy in town has a Surly Pugsly with the 4" tires on the Large Marge rims with a Rolhof 14 Speedhub and Jeff Jones Ti bars.

    I'm out of the loop when it comes to skiing. I have a set of the old, long, stiff skis and now everyone runs the short, fat ones. I need to get back on skis soon though because it's great fun (and because I promised my wife I'd take her skiing).

    I'll probably rent though, and leave my 204cm K2 CV Comps in the basement. My boots are trashed anyway.

    I used to be obsessed with sking, I still buy a season pass for Whiteface. I just don't have the time I used have. Know I just have one set of downhill Elan parabolic skis, Dalbello NX 7.2 boots with Salomon 800 bindings. I wish I had more time.

    If I lived closer to some real mountains, I'd probably live my life around skiing... *sigh* ...some day...

    I have four sets of skiies; good carvers, old carvers for rocky terrain, a really old straight set for getting pulled behind a car, and another thats older then me that never see the light of day.

    I use this one, it's mostly telemarkers, but lots of PDX peeps, and fun. They have videos at their Tele-vision site, fun to watch. http://www.telemarktips.com/

    People give regular reports on Mt Hood snow.
    You back now?

    I guess this is the place where I should have posted the info about Mammoth. So here is goes ...

    Here are Mammoth's snow totals for the four days starting on the 30th of December;

    Jan 02 40"
    Jan 01 55"
    Dec 31 20"
    Dec 30 10"

    ladies and gents, I did not fail math class and I'm hear to tell you that that's over 10 feet in four days!!

    Now someone needs to tell me why I live in NY and not out West.

    I'm dying to go skiing this year. Anyone tried out the Atomic Metron B5's?

    *sigh* pretty!

    I haven't tried them yet, but I've heard they're better than X-scream. They're 'fatter' and more stable on powder and moguls. Excellent choice

    Aah, I've been looking for a used pair of B5s, but even the used ones go for over $500, ugh. I also looked at the X-Screams for a while. Are they as good as advertised? I've read that the integrated bindings really help eliminate the dead spot usually found beneath the bindings.

    Yes, they are really good all-terrain skis. Mine were a present but if I had to chose I'd go with X-scream 10 Pilot.

    The Atomic are expensive but would be worth it if you plan to use them very often.

    Exactly, the X-Scream 10 Pilots - I was set on those before I heard about the new Atomics. I do believe the B5 would be the last ski I'd ever buy

    I would definitely rush out and get em if only I got to ski more and in better conditions than what we get in SoCal It's still one of my favorite sports.
