    Help Needed: gear for the ready-to-become-skiers family

    All-- I bit the bullet and bought season passes for the local resort for me and my two kids. (Husband wants to take lessons and overcome the first *terrible* lesson he had at a different local hill before he invests in a pass. Maybe next year.) I need help evaluating some end of season ski...

    Boots and bindings

    Hey ladies! I’m pretty new to skiing. My husband just introduced me this season and I’m already obsessed! I’m 100% positive that I want to invest in my own gear to grow into. I’m almost positive I’m going to get the Black Pearl 88’s. They seem to be exactly what I’m looking for. My...

    Help Needed: 2018 Blizzard Black Pearl or 2018 Nordica Santa Ana 93

    Hi! I need help choosing between the 2018 Blizzard Black Pearl in 166cm or 2018 Nordica Santa Ana 93 in 161cm. I am 5" 4' and I would say I am an intermediate-advanced skier.

    East coast all-mountain skis

    Howdy! I’m looking for recos on all-mountain skis and particularly, thoughts on waist. I ride out East most of the time, advanced/expert and am happiest in the trees. 5’4” and 175 pounds. Currently, I’m on K2 Potion XTIs at 156 and waist of 90. They’re fun and responsive, and so beautifully on...

    Help Needed: My New Skis are Miserable

    My first day out was no fun at all! I will leave out the play by play (even though I'm dying to vent about it) and get to the point. I bought a pair of skis and I think they are too long for me at this stage. I was crossing tips all day. At the end of last season I was skiing mostly parallel...

    Help Needed: Thinking of buying the Armada Victa 83

    Hi everyone! A little bit about me: I am 5ft4, 130lbs, and an intermediate skier (I ski blue and red runs without difficulty, have attempted some easier black runs but still not 100% confident). I ski mainly piste but sometimes venture a little bit off-piste. I am looking for skis that will...

    Question: Need advice on Hawk Ultra 90W

    I am very interested to hear from anyone who skis on a pair of Hawk Ultra, but more specifically 90. I am an advanced skier/ex racer/instructor, but because of where I live, I don't get to ski much, if at all over the past decade. My last pair of boots I bought when I was 18 and for some...
