    I returned to the ski world after a 16 year snowboarding hiatus (I'll probably snowboard this weekend though) so it's a 3 way tie:
    -168 Gotama's (white topsheet)
    -Dynafit ST's
    -Garmont Megarides

    Best purchase this year has been 186 Line Prophet 90s. They are a great ski for the midwest!!!!!!!!! If i skied primarily out west I'm sure it would be something different but around here these things kick ass.

    I saw that listing the day it went up! Emailed him even though I'm like 2000 miles away.

    Good on ya man. That is an insane deal.

    Oh, and: Birthday 06/07 Phat Luvs for my lovely wife $249 shipped. Thanks Porters Tahoe!

    Addition: Got used but good condition Head Worldcup Ti 97 boots off eBay for 39 bucks shipped. I was in 315mm X-wave 9's and 322mm Integral Equipes and learning to ski powder taught me my boots were too big. Also learned I have crazy narrow feet. These Worldcups are 300mm, scary tight but goddamn I can't wait to ski in them.

    46" poles
    Elite Feet service

    I was on 50" poles. After skiing a few runs with JT Holmes, he said "it looks like you're dealing cards out there. You are taller than me but try some shorter poles." FKNA right, the man was spot on. On steep pitches it's great; polling across catwalks..well....at least I'm not on a snowboard. But it's really changed my skiiing a lot and helped me get more agressive and angulate.

    I was always in pain esp my right big toe with horrendous toe bang. Christain of ELITE FEET at Squaw blew out one of my Dalbello Krytons. It was like Johnson's Baby Shampoo: no more tears.
