    Just curious as to how long a race tune would last. I know there are a lot of variables, but where I ski and the type of snow condition my bases and edges take a beating. It wasn't a race tune, but I...

    To close the loop on this I rode the Stickies part of a weekend and these boards did not resonate with me. Nice boards. Good quality build. Just didn't work for me. I can tell very quickly if a set...

    I didn't realize it had a lift. How often does the lift run - only on the weekends?
