I just picked up a pair of Salomon Malamutes. They are really stiff.

Don't go where the road leads, rather go where this is no road and make a trail.

that list is beyond useless because it only gives the ratings that are given by their respective manufacturers, which only apply to that specific manufacturer (i.e. K2 5/5 is not the same as a Burton 10/10)

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
