|Semi-Fat Boards Ready Go|
I used to say that good skiing is five percent skis and 95 percent the skier. I think the equipment quality and design has improved so much that I am more inclined to think that equipment may well contribute up to 50 percent of the success today. The really great skier can ski almost any kind of gear very well. For us geezers and other mortals the right boots and skis makes a significant difference. I consider myself fortunate to be at a place in my life where I can afford high quality gear. Perhaps that is the advantage of geezerhood. We have earned the right to play with better toys.
