Yes, you read the title right, my rossignol scratch pros snapped today, just infront of the binding, and me being me i chucked them in the bin, stupid i know.
So this is how it acctually happened, i was bombing it down from the top station at ski dubai, which is small so i wasnt exactly going super fast, planning to hit the kicker down near the bottom, now near the mid station theres a steep incline downwards where the mid station chair meets the slope, ad where the green run starts, so i gather speed and suddnly notices some gaper on snowblades skiing fast off the lift and about to cut me up. I obvioulsy had to avoid hittin him and turn immediatly to my left, straight into a wall at full speed. This is where my skis snap and i twist my ankle in an odd direction. I proceed to shout all i can at the gayblader and in the end he just skis away, so i ski switch down to the bottom and take my skis off and chuck them in the bin out of rage.
Now i have come to a prediciment, i have no skis, and the rental skis are either gaybldes or atomic skis, really crap atomic skis. So, im thinking, i was planning on getting a new mountainbike for my birthday, which would result in an every day activity, but i could scrap that and buy a new pair of skis which probably would only be used in ski dubai because im not going to any good resorts next year with a park because of exams. Or i could switch to snowboarding, which i can already do, and try and improve that because they have good rental boards at ski dubai for it.
So Newschoolers, im leaving it up to you to help decide what i need to do, i could either-
1. Buy the mountainbike and get hours of enjoyment out of that and improve my snowboarding with the burton rental boards at ski dubai
2. Or get some new skis
I obviously cant have them both, so choose 1 or 2 and put a valid reason
