    I work in shipping and there is one of me doing it all. Unless their fulfillment center is a absolute disaster then four days is a long ass time. They don't have that many sku's.

    Skied a few laps at Alta today just to demo skis. Conditions sucked raining hard. Basically just wanted to demo MSP and ravens. Disappointed that 4frnt wasnít there. Theyíve shown every year for years. I realize they moved to Vermont but Alta has been a base for them for years. Iím a huge fan of 4frnt skis. But really disappointed they didnít show.

    New owner doesn't care as much as he says he does.

    Whoa, Crazy! End of an era. Mad respect to Sterbenz for all he did and fighting the good fight all those years. I was always a huge fan. Even back in early High School when I trolled him in Freeze Magazine "ask a pro", asking him he preferred skiing in granny panties or man thongs, he took the bait.

    4frnt seems like it's full east coast now, and I wish them well in a new era. I think JLev knows about brand differentiation, so hopefully, J Skis can stay newschool and 4frnt core/big mountain/freeride. This years line seems to support that. It's not like he doesn't know how to make innovative products: Ostness Dragon, 1260, Mothership, Pollard's skis.

    Crazy times for a much loved company, nonetheless. I still vote for limited release EHP!

    This is a big bummer

    Their Originator is probably my favorite mogul specific ski.

    If anyone wants to get rid of one in the 168-177mm range, I know a somebody...

    Yeah, my 186s finally blew up. I'd pay full price plus sales tax to replace them.

    Hey RT, or anyone else interested in a 193 EHP set Iím gonna unload? love the ski but itís got limited use where I live and is hard to justify as a travel ski in my existing quiver.

    Chinese water color Currently mounted -8 (the line) with Tyrolia Attack 16 for 295. One previous mount was incorrectly mounted like -14CM . I donít think there are other mounts but Iím not 100% sure and Iím hesitant to take the binders off. Repaired tail edge compression which was common until they put plastic back there.

    Would let them go cheap

    Thanks for the heads up. But I have a retired pair, an active pair, and plus a backup. 193 is my daily driver out here and they see a lot of action.

    Someone buy SJs EHPs!

    The 193 ehp is a phenomenal ski for Rockies and West.

    a limited release EHP would go a long way on bridging new owners in. they posted a pic of a "pilsner" beer can on a ski on instagram yesterday... teaser?
