    I remember Keith telling me that the flex of his skis are consistent across models, in that he uses a machine to measure the flex of his skis. But I agree that the flex profile is going to be...

    I have a BC 190 flex #4 with veneer from last year, mounted with shifts, and I love them. I've ended up skiing them inbounds more than out of bounds, and they handle everything super well, at least...

    Thanks for the heads up. Just grabbed a chemical pant in L, took a bit of a gamble with sizing. If it doesn't work out I'll post it up on here.

    Just to see if anyone has had the same experience. I'm based in Seattle and got an Edge card for the 20/21 season (as I had credit to rollover from the 19/20 season). Obviously didn't get to use any...

    Thanks for the heads up. Had never heard of them, but pants look great. Bought 3 pairs for USD 57, including shipping and taxes!

    Alright then, seems like I'm the only one having issues. I'm going to give them another good detune and see how they (I) do on the upcoming weekend's slush fest.

    Just to clarify, do you...

    Jeez, took my eyes off this thread for a couple of days and there's a lot to catch up on all of a sudden.

    Crystal today was awesome, had my best day of skiing of the season so far. Snow was great (I am a sucker for soft chop), and no lines. Rocked up at 11.30 to find B-lot 60% full. Northway skied great,...

    I've mentioned this before, but I use my UL BCs flex 4 in the resort a lot. I'm 6'4, 210, hence the bump in flex to 4 as recommended by Keith. Mounted with shifts. Surprisingly capable inbounds ski....

    Looks like the V82s in a 186 are available again on STP. One left in stock. Had my first day on them today, great groomer ski. Heavy, damp, great grip, and snappy going from one edge to the other.

    Does anyone have any beta on low angle touring in the Mazama area? My wife and I are going to be staying there next weekend, thinking about doing a bit of touring while we're there. Seems like a lot...

    Conditions at Snoqualmie were mediocre at best today. Anything in the shade was pretty icy; runs in the sun were better but could still feel the hard surface underneath the slushier snow.

    Trailer hitch mounted ski rack

    Any recommendations on a trailer hitch mounted ski rack? My father in-law is trying to buy one for his car. He doesn't own bikes so doesn't want to get the Thule or Yakima ones that require a bike...

    Bummer, sorry about that. I guess it depends on what use you want out of them, but I definitely considered going 179 on the V76, purely because I wanted a really good carver. Based on Liberty's rec,...

    Oh fuck yeah bud, modern graffiti graphic FTW. My 192 stock GPOs with veneer, arguably the sexiest looking ski I've had. Mounted at -0.5. Had my second day on them about a week ago, and in good...

    Thanks for the advice. Went with the 82 in a 186 length! Will report back on this screaming deal :).

    Longest length available on the Evolv90 is 179 though, which may be a little short for me for an all-mountain?

    That's also the longest length available for the V76, though that may be less of an...

    I've never looked at Liberty skis but those prices are hard to beat and I'm in the market for a groomer/hardpack day. 6'4, 220, based in Seattle. Current quiver is as follows:

    Yeah I was planning on getting there at 11 today, spent an hour on the last stretch of road. Bumper to bumper traffic. Probably was one of the last cars to park in F-lot at around 11.40. I suspect...

    Wouldn't twitter get more traction with the (larger) group of people that ski Crystal, are pissed off with Alterra, but don't hang out on the TGR forums?

    Wait, so they are going to be requiring reservations? Seems unavoidable I guess, but it hasn't been announced on Crystal's website or on Ikon's website.
