    I believe Tom was banned from Magic mountain for ripping the top of Redline! I wonder if he's invited back with the new ownership.

    It will be very disappointing if the m-series fail-bots try to stand in for adria33 (who I now realize is a post deleting cry baby).

    No, Hermann Maier left the groomed piste just once.
    That was his legendary salto mortale in Nagano 1998.
    But he survived and won two Olympia gold medals few days later.

    Or maybe they were reported and deleted by the mods?

    Yeah, Chaka. "New steep skiing challenge" comes
    when you overtake ski experts with their "jump turns".
    The best place to do this is a steep and narrow couloir...Click image for larger version.

    If I asked nicely would you ship these for testing in the spring?

    That one certainly was. Kinda wish I'd quoted to preserve the particular weirdness but there's time for weirdness, I'm sure.
    A woman came up to me and said "I'd like to poison your mind
    with wrong ideas that appeal to you, though I am not unkind."

    Believe me, VTeton, I love Vermont and NH.
    In fact, RaxSkis were developed there in 2008 and 2009.
    In particular, the "blue ocean ice" was the father of hard-carving aluminium fins.

    So I will try to visit East Coast in this saison,
    just to see the performance of our latest model "Ski Absolute"
    www.raxski.com
    on "blue ocean ice".

    Just a heads up to those like me who might be new to this whole deal...if you're checking out the FAQs on raxski.com..."wer" seems to mean "where" and "was" is "what".
    Relatively low post count.

    Tom I wonder if you meant Maine. Our ice is way harder than those southern states.

    How has this gem of a jab gone unnoticed so far? Ha!
    The truth doesn't care about your feelings.

    Do the fins leave a trench? Or do they help loosen up the surface for the other riders?

    Paging TGR 420
    This would make an awesome ski segment.

    Start with scott schmidt jacket, neon headband and 207 GS skis doing peddle hop jump turns, then halfway down he gets smoked by a RAX STRAIGHTLINE!!!

    A Rax fin can carve just a thin groove in a hard snow or ice - see the photo below.
    Unlike carving skis the Rax one simply cannot destroy groomed piste and create bumps.
    I mean: hundred Rax riders would just draw thin lines in a piste, but no bumps.

    Well, Rax skis need not scrape the snow like all other skis do when turning.
    Rax skis turn as smooth as a train running on the rail.

    Wow, this thread delivers. Did not realize some of you VT mags met Tom.

    How do I go about getting a pair of these? Jackson Hole needs to see the light and I’ll provide a full TR.

    Good news, dear friend. Our foundry could just cast very first aluminium brackets
    (see the pic above) for our newest model "Steep mountain".
    So we can send a pair to Jackson Hole.
