As my cousin once told me when I asked if it was OK to leave our skis 'here', "You'd have to pay someone to take those skis." Well, look who's coming up in the world Tomtom!
|Out with the old. I had the far right style...... (That's Collin on the left)|
I had a meeting at work yesterday and afterwards Collin called me to meet him at REI. I swung by on my way home and Collin had already picked out a few skis that he thought were worth a look. I'm a real sucker for reviews and the ski shop guy gave me a raaaave review on two of the Volkls.
The Aura and the Kenja.
I was originally leaning towards the Aura's but after much thought (like 20 mins) I decided that they might be a liiiiiiittle too much underfoot from what I was coming from and ended up going with the Kenja's. Online reviews say they are an amazing true all-mountain ski and one of the best women's skis for a one-ski quiver. Ok, sold! So excited! :)
I'm going to get my boots and bindings fit today and then hopefully trying them out on Sunday!!
On a funny note:
Collin and I decided to stop for sushi while we were shopping around at REI. We had obviously driven separately, so after dinner I got a little head start since I was parked closest to the restaurant. It was dark outside and as I was driving I came to a red light. A few seconds later a big grey pick up pulled up next to me. I looked over, saw "Collin" and blew him a kiss, he smiled and looked away. Only then did I realize that the truck was a friggin' Toyota Tundra, not a Nissan Titan...and therefore NOT Collin either. My eyes bugged out of my head as we then proceeded to sit at the longest red light in Colorado.
When it turned green I screamed out loud in embarrassment and then laughed uncontrollably until I got home. Wow.
