I'd call Johnny our resident XCD expert but I'm sure there are others - no one is really asserting their dominance except the Ronster.
Ron - have you ever seen the notion of reviewers of all sorts of skill levels testing skis? Some places do this because what works for the 'expert' doesn't always work for the novice or the intermediate skier.
Also in terms of assessing a skis ability to turn does not mean you have to ski it down 35 degree slopes of shit snow. Some people might be interested in how a ski might perform in the typical terrain they may ski, and that may be 5 to 20 degree slopes of short or long duration. Just because you tour your skis doesn't mean you can't or won't encounter this.
So lets see here. Now not only have you never really contributed any kind of useful or correct information regarding ski gear, you also have proven that you aren't a very good skier and taken a beating for that. Seems to me you are batting 1000 big guy... might be time to take a breather.
MikeK, there's others who share your views on skiing. I share your views somewhat although I do like steeps and heavier gear too. I don't prefer photos of people skiing as much as the terrain and scenery, similar to what you were expressing in an earlier thread. You seem to know how this place is supposed to work. Why don't YOU start an XCD thread?
