Very nice! @Blossom Skis FTWThanks to @Blossom Skis , SkiTalk, @Tricia and @Philpug for Mamie's new Blossom AM85.
Mounted them up couple weeks back and went skiing at Stratton with them. Really nice skis. Mamie liked them a lot. My son's GF loved them a lot more. She didn't wanted to give them back.
Mounted skis on the bench ready to go.

Mamie on the new Blossom AM85. Typical early season conditions at Stratton. The conditions were not, shall we say, optimal. The ladies had several very good days on them though.

Even though everyone were on their usual NE early season rock skis, various Atomic FIS SLs. One of the ladies decided to stick to the Blossom AM85 rather than her FIS SL. That says a lot.

I'll get around to a more detailed review of the AM85 once we get out of the holiday rush madness and preparation for our trip west.
You look quite happy with that prize. Thanks to TokoView attachment 153734 View attachment 153735
Tried out my prize today. I was glad I tried it out on a dead pair of skis first.... it helped me get a feel for the balance and how fast to move. Once I had the hang of it, the tricky parts were a) starting on the edge where you start at the shovel, and b) cord management. The cord between the tool and the ac-dc converter is pretty stiff, and the one from there to the outlet is really stiff. (I have a ceiling cord hanger over my bench, but I did the grinding at a temporary location in the garage.) Eventually I looped it over my shoulder.
Now on to removing any burr and waxing....
I'm curious to see how they hold on ice.
