132, 117, 74 and My Toes Hurt

132, 117, and 74 those are the underfoot's of the 3 skis currently part of my arsenal. Needless to say the broad peaks (74's) aren't exactly "broad" personally I think they should be called Dynafit Skinny Peaks.

Needless to say going from a 117 underfoot to a 74 underfoot means some adjustments need to be made when travelling downhill especially in a foot of powder. Leaning back keeps you afloat and also jams your toes into your newly, not fully packed out, a little small, but damn light Scarpa Aliens. So at the end of a 9 mile tour on Saturday I was feeling "some" discomfort.
