Dave's Not Here

Learning to Fly . . urm . . I mean Ski

I’ve been skiing a bit on old racing skis (180s) and Lange boots. It has been . . urm . . interesting.

Tammy has been hating the fit of her boots, so we got her some custom boots, with some adjustments, and me some boots too.

Tammy tried on a few, but finally found some comfortable Dalbello 2011 Raya 10’s

My boots are a bit more agressive than hers, because I like powder, and hitting little jumps 🙂 For boots, I got Tecnica Demon 110i’s.

For skis, we decided to have Tammy continue to use her rental shaped skis, until she is ready for an all mountain set of skis. For me, however, I needed something, and, why get shaped, when I can get something more all mountain. Dennis recommended S7’s, or, for my skill level, maybe S3’s. Eric, at the Lifthouse, agreed with the S3’s. But, Tammy and I liked the graphics better on the Scott Dozers, and, there wasn’t a lot of difference. They’re both rockered all mountain skis. So, I ended up with Scott Dozer A Version 12’s.

I can’t wait to try them out!
