You know what I’d actually want and can nearly justify in terms of spend on skis to compliment our household’s current selection of 6 pairs of assorted freeskis? Something even harder to get your hands on than a GS ski with a cool topsheet.
A no compromise, competition-ready Black Crows mogul ski. That’s the cool, narrow, all-mountain ski that shops’ ski walls need.
Wait, a flat cambered Corvus?!?! Holy shit that sounds amazing. Make a freebird version of that and i’m Buying
1 meter of ski in front of the toe for powder (39 in)? That’s ALOT of ski at 110-120 wide.
Do you think me meant in front of the mount line (or boot center)? What do you run on your skis?
