Sorry did not mean to hijack this thread. Would love to try the Hoks.
The driest snow is high desert snow.

Best way I find is to use a photo hosting site like photobucket.
For some reason I can't add attachments, not enough posts to post a picture?
Thanks MeWolf1

I can't wait to hear from you on how they work, they look a bit narrow for the width of the ski....

Tested ski last night in about 15" of snow. skins worked pretty good for kicks and going uphill (about 20 degrees elevation)

kiggy, you managed to get Polisend skis from Russia? How did you ship?
Congrats, they're usually positively reviewed in Russia.

I asked friend to buy them in the internet store and ship it to me via private carrier. Sent him money via western union. shipping cost was more then cost of skis. still good deal - $200 CAD
