Had some excellent powder in Tignes last week and a couple of days of excellent visibility. Did 8 days on the trot - hiking stuff and skiing plenty of steep, technical stuff. I was absolutely exhausted by the end.
First outing for black crows corvus - beautiful skis, especially off piste in anything deep. Good in chop and stiff enough to get through anything with a crust too.
First impressions were that I could had opted for the 193's instead of 183's but I'm glad i didn't now. They are pretty heavy and cumbersome on anything mogul-like or icy and anything longer nwould have been crap in the trees. On a few days they definitely rode me for the last couple of home runs, instead of the other way around!
Was surprised how well they handled groomers versus other fatter skis i have used before, but glad I had my Line's with me for the couple of days of crap snow we had though.
Took the ski train for the first time - mixed feelings about it .. We got an extra 2 days skiing in, but as a travel experience it was dire. I think I had 3 hours of sleep on the way out and 2 on the way back. Plus the train out was 5 hours delayed.
