The advantage of lightweight skis

It took me more than sixty seasons on skis to finally discover the benefits of using lightweight skis.

I love to ski crud, cut powder tracks and wander into trees, so I must have something both very quick, responsive and nimble under foot.

For too long, I have used heavy metal skis, or a mixture of metal and fiberglass skis, and all the extra work they have imposed on me have aged me prematurely as a skier.

So, now I'm going light and won't care if my boards become a bit flighty and out of control when I happen ski fast.

I know from experience that extreme speed always come to a screeching halt!
