    While visiting my Mom this weekend, we found my last pair of college GS racing skis from the early 1980’s that evidently had been hidden away in a corner of the garage for nearly 40 years—these old Kastle National Team GS skis are 210cm (88mm-68mm-78mm) with a turn radius of 52m as determined by the FIS ski radius calculator (http://member.fis-ski.com/skicalc.htm).

    Since I am just getting back into racing after a multi-decade absence, I thought it might be fun to compare them with my newest GS skis—some Head Womens FIS 188cm/30m (101mm-65mm-82mm):

    Now if I could only find my old Kastle DH skis with the holes in the tips....

    I never understood the brake position on that binding. I think I was on a pair of Head Wahoo's around then....Or Head Racing SR's....

    Fun times back then. I'll keep my new skis thank you...
