    Well it has its upside, one the reading comprehension out here is off the chart.

    And in searching for that thread to give you a clue, I found this. Had to post it as Greydon and Squirrel are 2 of the more fun mags I had the pleasure to meet and ski with

    Luckily still see Squirrel a fair amount in various places.

    FWIW, I seem to recall Shane McConkey stating (I believe in Gaffney's Squawllywood book, if I am not mistaken) that 215cm was the minimum for men on "retro" long skis days. If you had anything shorter you had to wear a dress...

    Getting back into the old technique takes a minute to dial but you guys look to be making beauty turns. A bunch of Lifers, you guys are. Solid.

    Mank/guanch is super no bueno on the straight and narrow.
    Not to take anything away from any of the participants, because they all rip, in this case (for the pictures I posted) however it's rain-corn conditions in which the long boards slay.

    There might be a few 209s mixed in, but yeah it's pretty much 210+. A few are rolling 215 or 220s

    How about stfu?


    In an attempt to increase safety, the 2003–2004 season saw the FIS increase the minimum sidecut radius for downhill skis to 45 metres (148 ft) from 40 metres (131 ft), and impose minimum ski lengths for the first time: 218 cm (7 ft 2 in) for men, and 210 cm (6 ft 11 in) for women.
