If you like a lively fun poppy ski as I do don't buy volkls they are dead! Seriously way to damp! Atomics are at the other end of the spectrum snappy and fun the blizzards will fall somewhere in between. Hope that helps!

Bonafide for shure if most of your skiing is Minnesota, they will still rip at western resorts but the other skis you mentioned will be much less enjoyable on midwest hardpack !

you will probably be happy with either ski, as for length the rational is to go longer with rockered skis due to the shorter contact length on groomed snow and better flotation in the deep! as for the marker dukes I would avoid them, they are heavy, stiff(keep your powder fatties from bending correctly) and because of their height you loose feel for the ski and terrain! however if you really want the dukes I have a hardly used pair for sale, going cheap!

Are there any differences between this ski and the Karhu team 130 other than topsheet graphics. I understand they are made in the same mold, with similar dimensions but is the constrution the same?

A sleeping bag is only as warm as the user, and is largely determined by the loft. Down, traditionally, has offered the best warmth to weight ratio of any insulation. It's also very resiliant in that it maintains it's loft over many years, unlike synthetic. The Marmot CWM is one of the warmest sleeping bags available and you should be dying of heat at 32degrees, sweating being the biggest complaint. If your freezing in it, I would go see a doctor. It might be your hypothalamus acting up...(kidding of course). Unless there is something wrong with the bag, meaning all of the insulation at the feet has drifted elsewhere in the bag, you shouldn't be experiencing cold problems. Down drift can occur if the baffle material has been damaged or ripped. I would contact Marmot and possibly send the bag back to them for inspection...What(if any)sleeping pad are you using? The down on the bottom of the bag is compressed by your body weight and looses its insulating capability, therefore you need an insulating sleeping pad to keep you off the cold ground!

I got suckered into buying these skis back in the 80's when they were being touted as the ultimate extreme ski(for hucking cliffs, mashing moguls, shreding couloirs,etc.)with input from Scott Schmidt and Glen Plake. I can honestly say they were pretty much absolute crap! The tips delaminated within a couple of weeks and had to be returned. As for performance they pretty much had a mind of their own(this from someone who skied proffesionaly every day of the season). Bottom line, demo before you buy and never believe the hype!

I took my 190's through the mogul course in spring conditions and they performed flawlessly. Having said that, I am no slouch in the bumps and I can pilot most any ski well in spring corn. These skis seem to be unaffected by adverse condions, although I have yet to try them on eastern boilerplate.
