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](http://store.countryski.com/Dalbello-2011-Raya-10-8033009115378/)

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](http://shop.tecnicausa.com/Product/0101%2011%20DEMON%20110I%20SMOKE/ski-boots-demon-110).

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](http://www.blue-tomato.com/en/Freestyle-Ski/Scott-Dozer-165-11-12/product.bto?baseProduct=131820).

I can’t wait to try them out!
