I've definitely been an HS fan-boy for a while, and I haven't found a reason not to be. The skis are great, and the guys at High Society are some of the coolest in the biz. HS!
The new model this year is a GIGANTIC improvement and its easily the best ski I've been on before. Its frighteningly fast, yet with almost zero chatter, plows through the crud and pow, and rides switch like... may I say... whoa?
Just look at the picture, its sick!
Always pays to be a local
On my new pair, I have only skied on them for a month now but I know my last pair took an absolute beating and never came out with more than a scratch.
