This will be my new ski. My old one is already almost 15 years old and has no tension anymore.
I bought this ski (brand “Atomic”) after I have tested it for half a day. It was so great to ski that I told the guy who has rented it to me that I want to buy it immediately. It was already March and therefore late in the winter season and the man sold this used pair of skis for maybe 500 Swiss Franks to me.
I never had such a great ski before, it was a fun carver, a very short one, easy to turn. I can very well remember that I had difficulties to drive it at the beginning. Driving this skies was a challenge until now.
Yesterday there was a ski testing event from a local company which produces handcrafted skies with the new brand “Einsiedler”. As I am living in Einsiedeln have reason enough to test this skies. Testing was in the near skiing area just 5 minutes away. I tested 6 different models and at the end decided to buy the one which is almost the same as my old “Atomic” model.
While testing I used sometimes my old one to see the difference and what I saw and felt, that my old one was really old and its time to throw it away. I will have plenty of fun with the new skies.
