Another Denali Summit Success. Despite the unseasonably cooler weather for Charleston, the Adams managed to take skiers to the next level including myself. Part of me thought since I had been through it once before that I may not pick up much. Nope, I picked up a great deal more. Having them in the boat every set coaching plus the classroom studies along with a fun atmosphere start to finish was key. It didn't hurt having an Oyster festival going on at the same time on site. Actually it was the largest non skiing crowd I've seen standing on the shore watching skiers and asking questions. I think the big take away for most skiers ended up being just how much less physically demanding course skiing is at any rope length, physical make up or boat speed when you've learned the "how to" of GUT. Looking forward to the next one and have a lot to work on between now and then. Thank you Adams.
Also had a chance to ride the 2017 ski. Wasn't sure if they could improve much but just like all the other manufactures, they did... and in spades. With no fin or boot adjustments, first set ran several 32s with a clean and early 35. Basically was told I had to go to 38. Had a great 1 ball twice but the cold had sapped any strength I had left as it was my 3rd set. For this Florida boy that is damn good considering water and air temps that I never see and certainly never ski. Want a few more rides before commenting to much but more stable and seamless are the 2 words that pop to the front of my mind. Any ski I test or settings, I am tentative with first rides. That all vanished coming out of ball 2 first pass. Well done Adams.
