ok, so, im moving out west next season for at least a couple years and im starting to shop now for my first pair of dedicated powder skis. i was looking and looking for some francis bacons from last year because they were sick, but they seem to be all gone...maybe some will show up on ebay.
but then i was on the jibij site and i saw the new surface live lifes...i was toooooootally blown away by how gorgeous they are. so the question is this: how did you guys feel about last year's skis? i know theyre a pretty new company, so how reliable are they?
im 5'9, 170-175 right now, probably more like 165 when i move away from this shitty virginia food, so how do you think id do on a pair of 179 live lifes?
im not going to be moving until mid december, and im worried theyre gonna be long gone by the time i get there since only a couple places sell them and theyll be in such limited supply. because of this, id probably have to buy before i try, so to speak, just to make sure i get a pair before they sell out everywhere...so id have to feel pretty confident about them since theyre in the 6 hundo range
