I ask this question because I have three Mapple T2 skis. The one I like the most has four full ski seasons on it.
I have not liked anything I have tried more than my current ski. I am interested in the New Denali but probably won’t ski enough this year to justify it.
I can think of a few great skiers that rode their old skis for years. Simon Hill on the Shadow. Scott Larson on the X5.
I learned everything I know not to do from Horton
