Why buy fat wide boards with metal edges when you can have powder daze on skinny skis? Today was a get-out-and-enjoy-it 20K at Twin Brook, and the first time I've skied the dog side this winter. I timed it pretty well - 2 to 3 inches of fresh powder didn't really slow the skating much but allowed me to try alpine turns for the first time in my life (yes - I was on alpine skis once when I was a 10 year old at some place in NC but I just pointed the tips down the fall line and Franz Klammered it). Wicked good fun (the ski today not the experience in NC).
