Yo-Yo skiing on mt Yotei -- we toured maybe 1/2 way up to where the trees got small and made two laps on soft snow

Boy, the snow looks great, and clear skies! When we were there the snow was great, but the viz was horrible I'm green with envy, thanks for the report.

I took a pair of Dynafit Grand Tetons on this trip 108mm at the waist.   I have fatter skis, but choose not to bring them as their 128mm waist and lightweight construction (Voile Drifters) makes them kind of lousy for any lift skiing on groomed snow.

The Grand Tetons 191cm have been working pretty good for me.  I got them used from someone that couldn't make them turn fast enough.  But that's not a problem for me, at 110 kilos /Its easy for me to bend a ski into an arc.   I like buying skis whose reviews complain they are too stiff.

Nice to run into you over there, Randy! Good looking turns. We got up on Yotei for a little tour a couple days after you, great fun!
