Race Skis In Italy

Fleur: Nice piste, nice backdrop

Location: Courmayeur
Snow: Soft pistes
Weather: Bluebird

Just pistes today, through in Italy for better pistes than anywhere in the Chamonix Valley and on my new (second hand) GS skis for the first time to make things interesting.  Soft pistes, low crowds, fine weather and a couple of cappuccino breaks made for a nice relaxed day.

The skis were a lot of fun too; their 191 length is shorter than what a racer of my size would use, meaning that meant they didn’t kick my ass but still had incredible grip and stability on the pistes.  A fine addition to my ski quiver I think!

    Strange question possibly, but no FKS/pivot on any skis, why?
