Oh and "TURX" by the way, "you're" is a contraction of "you" and "are", so technically you just said "hey TA5 is stupid you are favorite word"

The appropriate word would have been "your" - a possessive adjective

I think you need some elementary school grammar lessons before you start playing around with thesauri and using big words.

As far as my misspellings go.Just lately I have been having trouble with your,you're,but more trouble with there,their,they're.

I think it stems from this online mis-spell-speak of the 'troubled youth' of today.I guess I'm absorbing it.

So,did you do yourself a a mischief not calling me stupid ? ,TURX.

All this talk about "Woodcore" skis is getting me excited.

Currently "playing" on the Volkl 724 pro's. It's a do it all ski. Wide enough to float in the pow, stiff enough to hold on the hard pack, and just the right side cut to rip on the groomers. Kinda like riding a pair of nimble bulldozers around the mountain, flattening everything in sight.

When I want to get down to serious business the Volkl six stars are a just that, all business. A precise ski that delivers power, edge grip, and precision arcs.

My feet are happy in my pair of Tecnica Icon Alu Comps with the hot form liner. The perfect balance between comfort and high performance, plus I can warm them up on the way to hill by plugging them into the cigarette lighter in my car.

I love Woodcore Skis, forget that foam stuff, get some wood under your feet

Unfortunately it is very hard to find a Nordica ski dealer. The ski line is very race oriented and has not caught on with the general public in the east. [/quote]

That will change in the next few years as one of the original partners in Tecnica has bought out Nordica. It's a long story but basically the two lines will remain seperate but share distribution resources here and abroad.

In my younger days I was a huge fan of Kastle skis, which was bought by Nordica when it was owned by Benetton several years ago. I think the factory and design people from the original Kastle are still pretty much in tact, which would explain the high caliber of the Nordica skis.

Interesting you post that. I am actually in commercial real estate and Bennetton is one of my clients. This summer I had to relocate the Bennetton people who worked at the Prince/Nordica headquarters after it was sold. I got a free pair of Grand Prix skis for doing it!

I am 511 190lbs. Given that here is my gear.

Skis for east side of Mississippi are all mountain type ski 175 cm length (111 68 9 last years model with regular alpine bindings DIN 12 binding set at 8.5 .

Skis for west side of Mississippi are wide powder boards 178 cm length (122 - 94 112). I have alpine touring binding on these again DIN 12 set at 8.5. This particular ski is not too bad on a groomer run either.

I demoed a midfat 74 waist ski this year and wow did they carve. I was extremely surprised that the new midfats can carve that well. Next east coast ski will probably be a midfat with about a 78 waist that should handle anything like bottom less over the knee powder, nasty crud, moguls, groomers and my favorite good old east coast hardpack. Well anything but a race course that is. I don't race competively.

Boots have custom foot beds since I have a high arch. I use alpine boots in both skis. Someday maybe I will get alpine touring boots.

Poles are 15 years old have a slight bend in them when I fell once back in 1992. Some blue paint still not scraped off.

Gore Tex paints and shell, polypropolene or Capilene fabrics for base layer. Also like the Schoeller fabric for a soft shell.

All right lets go skiing.

Hey tommyadrian5,

A friend of mine has this son in his early 20s that skied 110 days at Jackson Hole last year. He lives in Teton Village. Awesome very aggressive skier. Most of those 110 days were skied on Bandit XXX . Salomon Pocket Rocket another popular west coast powder ski that is foam. Lots of aggressive skiers on foam these days. Be careful how you use the word noodles.

Core type is like having a conversation about religion....

I ski on a salomon crossmax10, it has a form core. I can feel the surface more than a wood core and when I demoed it to a simular length wood core ski, it felt more nimble, light. The pop out of a turn was better. Also, it's stiff enough to punch through the crud but the wood core was a lot better. I bought it longer since I tend to ski fast. Feeling the surface also becomes a negative, it tends to chatter in granular surfaces and hardpack, the ride becomes a little bouncy. For this type of surface, I like my K2 axis xr just because its stable and I bought it on the short side so that I can engage my edge on the harder surface.

Alright, i'll admit, it seems that you woodcore addicts like them more for the nice groomed cruisers you hit up all the time. Frankly i'll take a lighter, more nimble, more responsive foam core ski anyday, makes it easier to dodge trees, but since you all seem to like to dodge beginners, stick to the wood core stuff, you keep all the ski companies in business paying twice as much for old technology.

Old-school gear: Dynastar G9 206cm with Marker MRR step-in (fun for super-G these days, but used more for early-season rock time).

New-school gear: Atomic SX:11 with SX:614 bindings. I tried a lot of skis at the end of last season, including the P50 Platinum, Salomon Crossmax 10, Dynastar Intuitiv 74 and Course 66, and the Atomic GS:9, SX:9 and SX:11.

Of the bunch, the SX:11 was the clear winner. It cuts boilerplate like butter, runs the gates perfectly, loves powder and crud, does the chutes and the trees. My knees and back aren't happy in the moguls, so that doesn't matter as much to me (I'd have gone with the SX:9 if that were the case). But the SX:11 is a super ski: the weekend after Christmas (after the rain in New England coated most mountains with a couple inches of solid, see-through ice), the SX:11 was in the zone, making effortless carves at all speeds, from a crawl to full F.I.S. race speed.

Otherwise, the variables are the same: Lange L10 Race boots, Scott World Cup or Smith GS-bend poles, Briko Windshape helmet.
