Once more I find a reason not to write much in my diary. There was a little Zweigelt last night though…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Looks like another great snow year in Yurp. Allez vous hors-piste?

    On-piste was heavy enough below about 1700m, but I hired some cracking K2 skis which just turned through it – marvellous! Sad to return – though the weather wasn’t very nice as we left, so maybe our departure was ‘punklich’!

    Try some DPS Lotus 120s in a 178 cm.
    Pardon my digressions.

      Good digression, not sure if those are too long in wet snow for a numty (comme moi)…
      my 160s were brilliant, also in a straight line schuss, they just failed the stability test in high-speed turns…

    It’s a really lovely, supple ski that’s soft but with a good rebound. They’re made from carbon fiber and wood instead of fiberglass and wood, so they’re extremely reslient and the lightest skis made (per area). In addition, they’re “rockered” meaning the tip starts curving up roughly 20 cm further back than a normal ski, so on pack, the effective contact area is less. They have no camber and just a bit of sidecut. You can demo them in Engleberg from a shop that’s in the Bellevue Terminus hotel, right across from the train station.
