Heaviest Skier To Run -41


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have an answer on this? I started thinking about the weight vs boat equation and how much extra weight must hurt skiers trying to to get down -41. I'm thinking Parish would be the largest / heaviest but I have no idea what he would wight in at. At some point north of 210 - 220 the weight has to be a really really big disadvantage making -41 almost impossible unless you have a seriously dialed in ski / setup. It seems in the modern era that smaller guys are getting it done and despite better equipment, new ZO, ropes, skis we are still not seeing many big skiers getting into -43.

When Nate first hit the scene a number of pros went on crazy diets to try to get as light as Nate. Year's later Pros all want to be light but put more focus on strength. Point is light is good but not holy grail.


(I am always trying to be lighter but not trying hard enough)
