P1090427Devanee has been skiing on a regular basis for the last few years. I think I got her started at Gunstock many years ago, but of late she goes with the school — and weather permitting, in April, I will take her with me for the day (given that in my old age I really have become a confirmed warm weather skier).

She likes her skiing, which is good, though she still hasn’t got to the point of skiing like a ‘Guruge‘.

I used to get her to rent her stuff. But, with her skiing more and more the economics of this was getting debatable. So in early December we went to a ski sale in Wolfeboro, at the Kingswood School, and bought her skis, boots and a helmet. Since I am anxious that she starts skiing like a ‘Guruge‘ as soon as possible I got her a pair of rather aggressive, heavily-waisted Völkl racing skis with decent Marker bindings. She, being the young lady she is, chose the boots — more for the looks and comfort rather than performance.

That is me in the Green, at Loon, last March.

She had her first ski outing, with the school, yesterday. So on Tuesday I realized that I had to get the bindings taken care of. I didn’t want to mess with them because if she broke her ankle Deanna would be convinced that it was because I hadn’t adjusted the bindings right. Plus despite my obsession, in years past, with skiing, I never used to do my own bindings. So, we needed to find a place to get the bindings done.

I thought that we would start with Gunstock, given that they do have a ski shop. I was, of course, willing to pay for the service.

But, it was FREE. That was pretty cool. I was impressed. Bravo, Gunstock.
