Ski Review Process

Horton is clearly suffering from "so many skis so little time" - Does he need to get himself a "Stig" or some volunteers to take the edge of his pain? Maybe a cloning machine or a BOS apprentice? Suggestions?

    @ozski I would love to farm it out. I am not sure what I do is genius but I do not know anyone (who is not a pro skier) that has the experience and temperament.

    I'll volunteer. Tests for skiers approaching 60+ yrs who ski most weekends April to October and are into -30 and -32 on good days :)

    I could do some real world rec skier testing. Ski for a while and then see how they survive in the sun for 4+ hours

    @MattP would probably be a good ski tester. Not many are more dedicated to the sport and he could give the 36 mph perspective on skis.

    Be fun to have Horton then a random forum person be delegated.

    So every ski Horton reviews then gets "bid on" to be reviewed by a forum member. Maybe ballers bid a $ amount to nominate then people vote or maybe people bid to buy the ski but have to review it.

    I think the ski companies would enjoy this format and the forum would profit.

    @BraceMaker money would taint the unbiased review process.

    I damn sure couldn't do it. I'm biased about everything. Maybe I'm just an as***le.
    Thanks for the consistent reviews. Too many skis? Sucks to be you

    Don't fix what ain't broke. IMHO. Thanks Horton!

    No one implied that is was broken more so overwhelming for 1 person to manage and maintain some level of sanity when a lot of product is coming at you.

    Maybe Horton can throw a charity ski test party, interested Ballers buy a $25 raffle ticket, John picks 10 tickets for a day at the Horton Compound trying out some of the Skis in his collection and the rest of the money goes to the charity of his choice.

    Thank you for the invite John, I will try to make that happen.......would Pliny the Elder be ok?

    @MattP Hence the money is to nominate someone you want to see ride it
