    PM me if you want to get more detail.
    very nice, that chute seems sweet. I was skiing the woods between liftline and starr on sunday. nice to see there are a decent amount of stowe skiers on here.

    Wow, I still was holding on that this was an elaborate hoax. I will now accept the fact that rax skis will sweep the nation.
    Wouldn't a finely tuned snowblade accomplish the same thing in the tight icy trees?
    Good on those guys for wading through the hate and trying to change the face of skiing. Why bother here though? There are way better forums for raxy spam.
    Maybe it will work for out east but us western skiers have such massive cocks we would only use a fat rax that would be wider than it would be long. Some thing along the lines of 99-340-99 would work nicely.
    Way to get after the melt freeze rax riders. As long as your having fun. Just understand that it looks weird and skiers can be snobs. Good riddence...I mean Luck!

    Maybe they were in NH skiing this that day

    The Rax skis will be taking a trip to tuckerman's this spring. They won't be the only skis I lug up for sure but they will get some 40 degree testing. Perhaps I can find someone at lunch rocks who will take them off the headwall. Are you that guy?


    RIP Saucer Boy- You showed us how to push the limits of small skis.

    No, never.
    However magically tuned a SNOWBLADE might be,
    it DOESN`T TRACK ON BUMPY HARD SLOPE.

    Jetski, when you ride in a brutal way,
    the Rax metal fins are really ripping
    the rough ice. Rax ski can be roaring then.
    Snowlerblade can just stroke the ground.

    Me too!
    Monoskis with Rax metal fins behind the boots.

    You know the logo of Derby de la Meije
    showing Xavier Duret riding down very steep chute
    while standing like a candle on a horizontal monoski.
    His monoski is scratching the ground with its tail.
    Looks like a very long "Firngleiter"
    or a long RaxSki without fins.

    Let's make monorax together.

    Powder Pirate,
    steel edges were invented to
    "compensate for lack of skiing ability"
    of whoever was not able to make it on prehistoric skis.
    So were shaped carvers 50 years later.

    The new ski technology will come
    whether you conservative guys like it or not.

    Thou art a naive lad.
    And I will breathe into thee a new skiing idea
    And thou shalt ski on the Rax

    Was just testing your knowledge

    The verse was stolen from Ezra Pound's "Ripostes".

    Our Rax partners keep on developing
    new technologies.
    The very first product of a foundry (!)
    has been tested in Tirol and Salzburg this week:

    Skiing is really cool.! Whenever you'll ski,
    you'll surely enjoy it.

    Rax still looks queer to me. But good to see someone else besides Tom comment on how they ski.

    There's still two pairs of Rax skis in the States. One pair in Boston and one at Squaw. Keep the dream alive.....
