I think you should try them on and then decide. The most important thing is the perfect fit and these boots have slightly different shapes, so one might fit you better than the other. If you ask people, some will say UPZ is superior, some will go for Deeluxe and some will prefer Head. UPZs typically...

Hochkar is only 420 from Budapest, so I only drove 840 + 4 times the 8km alpinstrasse up to the hill...., say it was 900 all in.

Showing off is fine, but showing off and being smashed against the ski rack or the stone wall looks kinda lame, so try to avoid that.... or if you do that, stand up immediately after the crash and shout at the surprised spectators:

THIS IS HOW A REAL MAN STOPS FOR A DRINK! :twisted:

Start practicing single laid turns in front of the mountain huts on a flat surface. It's a good exercise and you'll see if people appreciate what you did. Start with a frontside, than move to backsides. Don't hit the ski racks. Cheers

The real feeling is when you first manage to link 2 turns fully controlled. Doing a laid turn is relatively easy both sides. But once you learn how to link back to front and front to back - that is the real feeling!

I would make this topic independent of EC. The plates are designed for a single purpose: be the fastest between the gates on icy ruts. Undoubtedly, plates serve this purpose well. My quesstion would be: is it something we, mortal funcarvers are really looking for? Do we (mortal funcarvers) really wa...

My vote would go for Livigno. Nice place, good food, good apres ski, empty slopes. Some huge, long and wide red slopes (Carosselo 3000) and you can even find a really steep one for EC (not too long, but mostly empty) on the other side, I think the lift is called Teola.

I typically kick off the season on the weekend closest to Nov 1 in Sölden, and there are always many brands for testing (Oxess, Virus, etc)

I have no issues with t-bars, especially because I tend to sit on it in different positions (between the legs, from left, from right, just sitting on it, etc) so that my thighs don't hurt after a day of riding. It's just that Luca asked what the resort was like and I made this comment as apparently ...

Luca, I agree. On pure ice the only solution is t-bars. But do you want me to start listing here other glaciers where they have chairlifts and cabins? Sure, they are built on rocks and concrete, but still, the ski slope is a glacier.... Without actually checking the maps, just by the top of my head,...

Kaprun / Kitzsteinhorn is a nice place, but there are only t-bars up on the glacier. The other small thing that could be easily corrected is that there is no bar around those t-bars.... you either have to go to the top with the panorama lift or you have to go one station down. One more thing that an...

Apparently you had a great time - fakie, one legged, laid back, jumping :wink: COOL 8)

Your video made me missing snowboarding.... especially because in the last 4 weeks we had such a shitty weather that I could not go waterskiing... :cry:
