so a few days ago i decided to rocker out my thrashed old 1st gen stls. i used the old basement stair method, and an industrial heating blanket from my ski press. they are wicked soft, so with the rocker, its a pretty squishy ski.
anyway, i tried them out a few days ago when it was cold, and they were totally unridable. fuck, just wasted some skis. well today it was real warm and sloppy (think late spring conditions), and i decided to bust them out again. they fucking shredded! they just slash around through the slush. most fun ive had in a while. and cause they are a pretty small waisted ski, they were still really light to throw around. definitely a day where a stiffer, normal cambered ski just dug in, but a full blown pow ski would be too much.
