I'll try out shaped skis for the first time this year. A friend of mine gave me a pair of old, but unused, X Frees, now I just need bindings. From everything I hear from my buddies who still ski a lot, I plan on getting hooked all over again. This will be the first time since 1988 that I will ski on skis shorter than 203cm (except for the time I skied the Otis from N Lake to Palenville on 185s after the blizzard of '93). I'm not sure how long the skis are but I think they are 190s. Long by today's standards but short by mine. Time to bust out the day-glo orange boots again! Favorite area? When I was in Plattsburgh, Jay Peak became a favorite spot for many of us. Mad River Glen was always fun for a couple of trips a year too.
