Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:

New Skis: Atomic Race RC

Just bought some new skis, in fact the first piste skis I've owned since the 1980s. Atomic Race RCs, I liked the colour Happy. They are a kind of punter fake slalom ski. Here is a review I found on the web

Thanks to its wider shuffle it creates a good lifting and may be navigated very well in deep powder, too.

wtf are they on about?

Anyway I'll let you know how they work out. Principal use is for hard icy pistes as my old skis (former rando skis) have the grip of olive oil on a hot metal platter.

I think maybe "shuffle" should read "shovel" and that just means they have a wide tip for better float in soft snow...

Shuffle sounds like my skiing in the siberian conditions.

Anway took the skis out, strange being on proper piste skis for a change. They like a medium radius turn carved turns and don't take kindly to being skidded. Skied some powder and cut-up snow and they seem to be pretty good on this, better than I expected, maybe due to the large "shovel".

Snow was very good today, I'm curious as to how they will perform on hard, icy snow, which is what I bought them for.
