    [Retracted, just realised no disc] I'll go 3rd dibs!

    I can't believe how many people seemed to walk away from that relatively unharmed. I think 2 guys got stretchered out and a few limping, but other than that just a few snapped forks and wheels. The race after was pretty impressive, I've no idea how Colin Strickland managed to stay out on his own for so long. Also the women's race was amazing, Keira McVitty did some pretty incredible turns on the front.

    3.0's are nice, incredible flex pattern and I quite like the lightweight core in them. Makes a really good freestyle-ish floaty ski. If you want a dedicated pow ski though I'd go for something wider. The 4.0s or something like a shredittor, the extra surface area just makes skiing trees and deep stuff so effortless.

    The Supernatural 92 isn't so different to the Ova, maybe a bit stiffer underfoot from memory, although I haven't skied this year's Ova. I would really recommend testing out a few skis before you buy a pair. Test a few in different waist widths, have a look at things like rocker and tail profile and try and work out which combo might suit your skiing best.

    Why those two may I ask? They are very different skis. The Ova is a fairly narrow, soft-tipped resort ski and the Supernatural is a relatively stiff charger.

    Sick days come in a few widths, like the supernatural and are all fairly different skis. Which ones were you looking at? The wider ones are good for deep tree-run days, as they are fairly soft and have a tapered tail so make for easy short turns in pow.

    And you have to factor in the cost and effort of at least one wax per year, and probably a service, which would cost about 30EUR.

    I've just taken my core bibs out for their first spin. Bit tighter than classic bibs due to the material being less stretchy. I wear 32 trousers and the mediums are pretty snug on the hips. Also, the wide leg grippers are quite loose, just right for my legs though. Straps are also a bit more constrictive than classics. I like that the back comes a bit higher though.

    Already going to have some kind of bar bag. Haven't actually checked whether the two would interfere yet. Probably should...

    Ok, travelling on an aeroplane. I live in Switzerland, and would probably have a different attitude if I moved back to London, I used to have one of those utilikey jobbies which did almost everything I needed it to.
