Without the full context you may think that.

In reality, at the bottom of that run it gets quite slushy....just before the lake, Max 501 drops a ski as he catches the ski rope...the driver guns it....meanwhile, the Russians with the machine guns catch up on jet skis and continue to fire...then....as the ski boat makes sharp turn just before the waterfall, Max5-007 launches over the falls, drops the second ski and flies cross country in his winged suit.

Man, I somehow just got a craving for a Hintertuxerhof Martini!

Max,
You must have a professional ski photographer following you around while you're skiing these days? :mrgreen:

Looks like you've had some good snow out there.

Max, Harald and I all love the Shaman for deep snow. The 184 length has an 18m TR and the 173 length has a 15m TR. This is incredibly hard to find in a wide ski especially with no Rocker. It's an easy ski to ski in soft snow but after tipping a wide ski all day I definitely feel it in my knees. When it gets real cut up and it is more crud, I much prefer going to the IM 78 which then feels so easy to tip after being on the Shamans.

These skis are worth a demo if you get a lot of deep fresh snow and you are looking for a ski that will work well with PMTS technique. The width allows one to move at slower speeds and still plane on top of the snow.
Balance: Essential in skiing and in life!

I'm thinking that shot wants to be a poster.
