    The early 120's (and 138's I'm told) were shockingly good. Then came pretty colors, heavier layups with fancy names like "pure nano" that cost more but skied no better than the older light ones, plus...

    I don't see much point in a sub 100 waist unless you want to ski a lot of bumps and or groomers. Then I'd drop down to sub 90 anyway.

    Nice work. Another worthy project would be 3D printable binding shims, especially if it could be done for under $20 a pair. I have no idea what the price of printing with ABS/Nylon/HDPE would be.

    I'll check my box of stuff.

    Edit: I do have a pair. Also have two pairs of crampon holders. If you, or anyone else, needs those items pm me. I'll probably never check this thread again.

    Haven't been but I would guess it's too thin. St Vrain Mountain looks like it might be good: either the east face or the more southern of the southeast facing chutes. The latter would likely involve...

    I'd recommend starting with "do you need any help?" then, assuming the answer is no, follow up with, "ok, would you mind if we ski past you?"

    There was some good 7-10 days ago. Wind and sun seems to have taken care of that. If we get a couple inches Monday some of the typical early season spots might be worth skiing.
