I thought the graphics were excellent and enjoyed that veterans were part of the process...still skiing and still covering for soldiers. Being from Colorado and as a member of the 19th SFG(A) I always thought the 10th SFG(A)should be here...like the 10th Mtn Div from the 40's so it thrills me that that became the case and glad to see them embracing the rich tradition those men had. Things like Series D maneuvers, " If you volunteer out of the 10th for combat, you are yellow", the way they embraced Europeans, ski professionals, ranchers, and chefs into their ranks, started many of the ski areas in this country, etc...Looks like you could get a pair of those beauties.
For the uninitiated, including myself after years of being away, I will always remember my friends expression when I headed up above Aspen for a few nights of Winter camping when he realized I had no skis nor snow shoes....Anywhere besides the roads it was chest deep. Lesson learned!
I mostly ski Ski Cooper out of that same 10th Mt tradition, the crazy soft deep snow and proximity to Old Camp Hale. Using telemark bindings on my set up now so I can ski into places and try something a little different. It is a blast on those big boards ( 186s )
A few weeks ago they said we were at 130% of our snow levels...it's been snowing ever since.
Dave I have rented some of the vectors with scales and because of where I have been skiing I found them slow on faster snow they would be great and the scales work out well for slight grades.
As a disclaimer Voile has been very good to me and I do support their great products but this is a outstanding procurement story that I have to embrace!
Kudos to all involved in developing, making, and getting those skis to the soldiers.
