I was pumped when I saw the dps demo tent at the Bush sat AM. Tried out the 112rp pures first thing. HOLY FUN SKI. I did not enjoy going back to my 188 bros the rest of the day.
Pics from the Smuggs crew keeps getting better and better!
Some mediocre pics, I was having autofocus issues in the woods. Are people manually focusing or just making sure that there is no brush in the frame that AF is going to snap to?

Crazy NE Winter!
Happy B-Day VT-free!
Great weekend. Got out yesterday with the family at Sunapee for a cold but sunny day. Great skiing early following the sun around. So psyched how my little ladies are skiing. Will try and post up some pics next time we go out. Really amazed on how well Plum Guides ski - was always skeptical of this type of set up but not any more. Fun family day.
Good to see ya the other night Strawjack - Bella Rose pizza yummy. Let's get out next next storm cycle (it's coming - patientce, patience, patience).
Rog have fun surfing and sun. Sounds like I missed a gem yesterday but was worth it spending the day with the kids. Enjoy the trip!
Sweet pics all. TC, HA and crew - you guys are killing it up there. See ya Tuesday night TC if that is still OK. May not get many turns in but who knows? Let's hope that cold front following this ra*n shit dumps a good refresher for Wed morning! Crazy ass weather.
Go Pats! Lynchdog blog out! Enjoy.The Passion is in the Risk

Great shot, gpetrics! That calf looks like she is in full trot to trench the cord.

Awesome shots all. Sounds like I missed some sick skiing up high yesterday. Rog - did you stay on the E snowfields or were you in the gully's too?
Wildcat was good Sat morning. Wind blew that 3.5% snow around and it was like a reload day. Spatwelve, I saw your superbros but didn't see you.
The Worth DB's skied well. Had a couple of friends take some rides on them too. Was really surprised at how well they carved and held on ice. Working on a full review, need some more days on them though.
The Pats game was fun. Never sat down once. Got too drunk towards the end. Kinda jealous I didn't go ski George.
Buttah - sick you got to see the medals. Which shop do you work at?
I think I did some damage to my toes this weekend and last. Biting the bullet and getting hottronic's for next weekend.

Swede-skiing is lookin great over at the bush nice shots.
LD- yeah totally fine, today is feeling balmy, NOAA saying snow next few days though, maybe we will get some more unexpected storms. Lets see some kid stoke!
Neufox- remember detune those tip edges about a centimeter below the rocker start point and wax them, start haus did a great tune but no wax on them. And yeah lets see some george pics. I need to get the georges up on george for a product shot.

After 18 days straight, ending with a 55" cycle and a few laps of thigh deep cold smoke yesterday morning, waking up to a warm fog back in MD is a rude awakening!
Now it's time to get back up to VT. Save some snow up north for me, TC. Should be up this weekend.
Happy birthday VTF!!
And awesome moose shot, Greg!! Still waiting to run into one of those guys in my travels in the breadloaf - I imagine it's only a matter of time.

Happy bday VTF!
GP awesome shot dude! Nice to see a post from you in here...
Rog, pics please....
AK, welcome back East.

All joking aside, that's one of the cooler ski shots I've seen. Awesome stuff.
The natural stuff at Magic was better than I expected this weekend. Lots of weeds pushing through some of the steeper runs, but it kept most people off them so there was fresh snow to be had. A big dump would be certainly welcome though.

First, a bit about me: 6'2" 175lbs super-skinny. 15ish days so far this season, 100+ in JH and Squaw last year, maybe 60 or 70 in my life prior to that.
Quiver/likes in a board: 07 Custom X 158, 08 T6 162, 09 T6 162, 11 T7 162, all mounted with Ride CADs and a pair of RXs on the CX. Boots are Salomon Malamute 28.5. If these are any indication, I like things stiff. The T7 seems a bit more playful than the T6s, and I like that. I'm a big fan of making GS turns on groomers and trying to emulate the ski racers. In the backcountry, I still don't have the confidence to really send big stuff, but I'm working on it.
Conditions on Saturday were variable, but softer than other days in recent memory. Terrain was super-mellow and way outside what this thing is intended to do. At first, I had difficulty getting the board to lock in to a carve. On long, stiff, cambered boards, you feel them loading up as you enter the turn, and once it locks, you can really stand on it. Then you'll get sprung out of the turn once you release it. I like this feeling. The Venture doesn't do this. I did find that you could very sloppily throw it in to a turn and it would just bite and hook up. This is also quite the neat feeling, but took some getting used to. Once it's hooked in, it stays there. You have to actively release a turn, and it took me a few runs to really figure this out and learn to trust it. After that, I could generally identify trenches I left on previous runs.
The rocker makes it feel shorter than it is. You can make surprisingly small turns on it. This, with the softer nose, made it do better than expected in bumps. I took a run down Conclusion (super-bumped) and found that I could put a lot more weight on the nose than I can on a T6. Weird feeling, but it's probably just the additional 4cm I'm not used to.
I like the board. A lot. It won't replace a T6 on hard-pack, but I think it is every bit as capable in the soft stuff. I bought it intending to make it a dedicated powder board, and I should figure out how well it works in those conditions in big-mountain terrain as I'm flying to Switzerland on Wednesday. I'll report back at some point.

Thanks for the review mangle, This is my first season in Malamutes and loving them after like 5 years in Driver x's. The camber underfoot and rocker combo on the NS seem to work great for me.. Last season was a good year to be at Squaw/JH. Have fun in Switzerland dude, I am counting the days till i head to Japan with TC.
