Ever had bangers and mash? Good stuff huh?
These are one of the best skis we've made so far. They are
easy to maneuver and the width makes them float well in powder. There's
not much to say about these skis. I went on a short road trip to test the
Bangers and I'll leave it up to the photos to show you how they skied.
First ski test: China Mountain, NE Nevada, March 17, 2006.
My friend Skip Swenson and I drove from Seattle down to the Ruby Mountains in
NV. Along the way, we stopped to ski a random mountain in NE Nevada just
off US93. The north side of the mountain offered great skiing. After
China Mtn, we stopped in Elko, NV, to inquire about conditions in the Rubies.
Due to an approaching winter storm warning, we decided to drive to Salt Lake
City, Utah, to meet up with other friends. We found great powder in the
Wasatch backcountry at the end of Little Cottonwood Canyon. The Bangers
