Glad you like it.
I eat my own dogfood
too (so to speak.)
The test of a good ski company (or company in general) to me (in terms of "keeping it real") is are they making the product entirely or mainly for themselves, or is it for some "target market." Are founders still present and managing? Is what they are doing unique... and finally, does it resonate with you.
Also, a lot of these ski companies have common parent companies. I don't think I'd want to sell out like that (if it imaginarily ever got to that point), and I think that's the final test of a good company: will the brand get trashed or cannibalized down the line by the founder or the acquirer.
Pagani is a model company to me to emulate...
