I dare you to make a thread about your little ski test and see how many of us consumers have actually heard of it. That should be a good indicator to how much your ski examination really matters. Sure its great youre benefiting charity and whatnot, but if you were really down with that there are much better ways to help out those in need. Your ski test is whack. It means nothing to the consumer, the buyer, the shop, the ski compnay, fuck...the industry as a whole. So chill out and take your blab blab elsewhere. You are doing nothing positive here except making yourself and you lame ass test look like exactly what it is...NOTHING. We have enough kids here whinning about everything else in the ski world, the last thing we need is some supposedly mature member running his mouth complaining about what ski companies won't contribute to his piss poor excuse of a ski test and charity. If you really knew what you were doing and actually cared you would take your comments to those who matter and not to a pubescent message board. And if they choose not to contribute to your 'cause' then you are the last person to take it to the public and whine. You should keep it to yourself and try again later. But you sould know that right? I mean you are some important ski industry notable...at least thats what you make out yourself to be. Be quiet, grow up and have a nice day.
