Augment Skis is going to be in the Sturtevants location a 1/2 block from the Warm Spring lodge both Saturday February 29th and Sunday March 1st. The demos are free and we welcome all Pugski members to drop in and take a pair of All-Mountain 77s and 88s, Sport and Performance Carve skis for a...
I was quite intrigued when Phil reached out and let me know he had an Augment 77 in an 159 (121.5/77/107.5, 14m radius) available for testing. I've only read about Augment on Pugski, but have yet to see one in the wild in Tahoe. And I have a 2018 Stockli Laser AX in a 159 (123/78/109, 13m...

Sorry I haven't been posting: I have barely been skiing. Too much going on in my life right now! I hope to take advantage of spring conditions once things settle down: I was supposed to ski in Tahoe last week, but Bend got buried and I couldn't make it out of town. Ah well, life...
Headed to Breck on Friday & already called several shops looking to demo either of these brands....to no avail.
Anyone know of a Stockli shop in the area? Or Kastle?
Would love to demo AX and SR88.
Thanks for the help?
For the first time a woman’s ski was the best-selling ski in America - the Blizzard Black Pearl 88 (the period ending either September, October or November 2018).
Overall, women’s ski sales were up 21%, far outpacing men’s sales growth.
In the same period, men’s snowboard equipment sales were...
I rented Brahma SP (173) for three days at Park City, Utah over Xmas, felt very comfortable on them. Now that my old ski (2016 Bushwacker) got a giant core shot in one ski, I'm thinking about upgrading. The problem is that I can't find any details on them other than some superficial info about...
As title indicates, Kastle FX104’s in plastic, lets say NOS. Bought these from Powder7 before I ever stepped on a Stockli. Taking up space now. I really did like these skis a lot. Pretty wide performance envelope.
$300 shipped lower 48. If that’s nonsense, let me know or make an offfer -...
I got to ski next year's skis with ski legend and Fischer product manager Mike Hattrup at Stowe Mountain Resort. Conditions were a few inched of dust on a couple day old crust. Pretty decent skiing, but a little noisy some places. Bumps were January firm, with just a bit more dust on them...

I'm male 5'7" 130 lbs. I have the FX85 and LOVE them for moguls and glades. On groomers though, they're kinda meh. So I'm looking for a skinny Kastle, either MX or LX. I would prefer this ski to have a short radius, and I also ski fast on groomers, think 30mph.
Today I demoed the MX74 and...
Hi! So, I have been skiing on some older Kästles, old Volkl Racing Skis, and some also old Head Racing skis. While I am pretty happy with my setup, at the end of this 2016-2017 started to demo a lot of skis with the intentions to buy a pair and, needless to say I had some great times with some...
