My Atomic Metrons are due for replacement at the end of this season so I'm looking for some new ones. In my online search, I came across many US and Canadian handmade ski companies (Moment, Paranormal etc). The graphics are pretty cool and I like the idea of supporting small producers. The prices are also excellent. I've never seen any of these skis on a demo day, so my chances of actually trying these before buying are about zero. Anyone ski on "handmades"?
I ski in the East with the sporadic trip to Western places with powder. I'm an expert skier (honest) but with limited glade/bowl experience.
