Loved these skis! However, after I had them tuned, their performance on hard snow dropped -decreased edge hold. Shop said they did a 1 deg base bevel and 2 degree side. Anybody know what the factory tune is on this ski as I'd love to return the "out of the box" performance.

I'm 5'10", about 215lbs. Not an ex-racer but decently aggressive. I ski about 30 days a year in Tahoe. Everybody I talked to said at my height and weight, the 193cm would be a better choice as the 183cm might ski too short. I went with the 193cm and will probably mount somewhere between center and traditional. I also like to ski the trees but the tree runs I like aren't as tight as those in UT or CO.

Well, maybe not the best ever but definitely the best I've had. The wide frames fit my face perfectly and the perfect compatibility with my Smith helmet cannot be beat. I give them 4 stars out of 5 only because the foam around the lens tends to tear easily but it does not seem to affect the performance factor. They never fog but if they do (on seriously wet days in Tahoe), a brief dryer session works everything out. The trick is to take the lens out of the frame and force the air through the two lenses. I'll continue to buy these until I find something better (something I highly doubt).

I've used this jacket for a month now and it's been exactly what I was looking for -lightly insulated jacket that I could use on semi-cold days when a full down jacket would be overkill. The only change I would make to the design of this jacket would be to change the cuffs from elastic cuffs to open cuffs with a velcro enclosure so that they can fit over my ski gloves. Other than that, it was a nice pick up.
