Liam: Yes -- the issue of coaching was mentioned as a priority. I don't expect the equipment to make me a better me.

The Rossi E88 vs 98 -- ok  -- maybe the 98 in the future at Tahoe / Mammoth when there's good snow.

I'll check out the MX78 and some of the other recommendations. Thanks Jim.

p.s. I stopped in at the custom boot fitter's place this afternoon -- they sell a few different
makes of skis -- nothing narrower than 80mm though -- but I had the chance to look at
a few different models. I'll tell you now -- whether it's the right ski for me or not, the
Salomon Enduro XT 850 is very impressively constructed. Feels much different in the
hand than many of the other models in the 86mm waist I looked at. Just a FYI -- not
implying anything..

thanks again.
