    You guys should be ashamed of yourself…. toxic waste to have a good time, what ever happened to the simpler days of racing when it wasnt about corporate hijacking of our sport…. and yes I wax my own skis with pork fat.

    yep… and the story of our ski culture, bought into technology over brain power…
    Racing used to be for everyone, not just those with extra cash.
    Makes as much sense as having a National ski race in Rumford Maine….. Just lets all add to global warming by sending athletes across the country, to rock ski a 2.7 k loop…. or lets start to think again. Such a beautiful sport turned stupid.
    You know its a recreational sport…. and for a very few a professional one…. lets tone down the tech. and retake this what was an environmentally sensitive activity.
