|Karen and I went on four trips with the Century City Ski Club during the 2002/2003 Winter season as follows:|
|Mammoth Mountain, December 15 & 16, 2002.|
Instead of my usual 188 cm skis, I rented Head 177 cm demos. They worked good, but still required work to control and turn. On Sunday afternoon a snowstorm and high winds came in. We retreated to the Yodler early.

After being told of the glory of even shorter shaped skis, I rented a pair of K2 Axis XP 167 cm demos. They were wonderful. Turning was a breeze. I took my first run ever down the face of the Cornice. Beautiful! (Photo)
|Sun Valley, February 1 through 8, 2003.|
The Sun Valley rental shop did not have K2 skis. So I rented Vokle P50 173 demos. They were very good and held their edge even in the few very icy spots. Six days of beautiful and almost effortless skiing — most of the time with other, very fast CCSC skiers. Only two very minor, slow speed falls. Karen skied only one day. (Photo)
|Mammoth Mountain, March 29 & 30, 2003.|
I again rented the K2 Axis XP 167 cm demos. Karen rented gray Head 149 cm demos. Again my skis were absolute perfection. I did some of my best skiing ever. Karen did well and skied with me to Canyon Lodge (we encountered some slush there) and back again to the Main Lodge. I did many runs down the Cornice Bowl.
