@Little Martin, good luck, by now I hope you have a handle if you are pass/fail!

For 166cm length what weight/height are you?

Just for info, today I bought some Dalbello Lupo AT 120s, and Dynastar Speedzones 12 in 174. It's my birthday next week, or at least, that's my excuse.

Now, about that BASI thing...

Thanks, yes I remember the fast track, definitely helped back for my L1.

I shamefully admit I didn't prepare much for the L2, I definitely could have done with some short turn work prior to the course. Still just over 4 years (3rd Feb 2014!) since putting skis on for the first time, apparently I'm still doing well Wink

I'm now considering if L3 is doable, both time and commitments (thanks to Mrs LM for letting me do my L2 at short notice) probably won't let me get it done in any sensible time frame, and give me the chance to train properly.

(sorry for hijacking the thread...)

I've just noticed that BASI have added some reviews of skis from the forthcoming 2018/19 ranges they consider suitable to their website..
https://www.basi.org.uk/BASI/Home_Page_News/The_best_skis_for_Level_1_and_2_courses.aspx

Interesting that the video above suggests that the speedzone 14 would also be suitable for L3, something he doesn't say of any of the other skis reviewed.

On a personal level I can confirm that the speedzone 14 was an excellent choice for passing L2 Very Happy Our trainer was on the Speedzone 16.

TUbaski, Good review by BASI on the skis, thanks for sharing.. Dynastar gets the nod for L3 duties as well which says something doesnt it Wink
