Flex tested my skis this morning. The good news is that the wax pocket on both pairs can definitely be longer. In other words, I can add more kick wax without sacrificing glide, and, therefore, kick up the hills better. (It also means that I'm definitely less fat.)
I think for next week I'm going to use the softer pair. (Unless it's a klister day.) They're a slightly higher end ski, but they aren't in quite as good shape. I willing to sacrifice the better glide for the better kick. I think the softer ski will be a boost to the confidence level, which is really what my skiing needs right now.
In other news, the skiing right now is phenomenal. Went for a ski yesterday...actually, I skated...with a couple co-workers. And since it's my job, I made a video of it for our website. It's not a very good video, but the goal was to show the conditions and have a little fun. The result is a fairly shaky experience, but it's tough to ski with no poles and keep up with two fast skiers. Well, it is for me anyway.
If you're interested and bored, you can check out some of the other stuff I've shot this season here. Pretty much everything gets posted on the blog and the Great Glen Trails website, or better yet, you could come on up and ski. And, no, I won't get you passes.
