F=MA
Or
M=F/A
And,
A=F/M
Where
M= mass
A= awesomeness
And
F= faceshots
So,
The more you weigh, the more face shots you get, if your awesomeness remains constant.
But,
You will be way more awesome, and get more faceshots if you weigh less.

And I think more people should post while inebriated.

No, I'm not a telephone solicitor.  I ski with my heels free.

Uuuhhh....what qualifies as "old?". Love the replies but for some reason, I weigh what I did when I was 16 and stringy & hitting 63. My beloved moose wool Cowichan sweater goin on 50 years fits like a custom suit. Just do what works as best you can and hope the gene pool is in alignment.
The other equation:
Ski (base) surface SB
Flex Curve  F
Weight Emphasis  W
Skier Weight S
Aaahhh....just had that evening brew & the wifey has a chore in mind, you guys figure it out! What I really want to know is, when does the snorkel become a necessity?  Cheers
