Fancy some whitedot skis like these babies?



The Dots Dozen opens at midnight.

I got in last year and I *love* my skis.

Good luck, Spudski! I wish I'd gotten some fatter ones now instead of The Ones. Three out of four friends love theirs, and the other one (who loves racing skis) didn't like his because he wasn't used to the bigger turns.

Great quality and lots of fun on and off the piste. Plus a nice design with a cool tip and tail shape.

The ones look fun for an everyday ski, but I like the design, nice and simple. When i win those new fangled carbon ones we can swap....

That would be nice. Although this winter potentially involves being contractually obliged to ski on rossi skis, so perhaps best not.

Even though they're carbon, they are MONSTERS! I'd be way too scared.

eldub, glad to see you're doing a season. Where are you going (apologies if you replied to this elsewhere - flat knacker with work lately).

Not long to go if you change your mind! It's lifetime membership, so cheap skis next year even if you don't buy them this year.

Oh really...

No, must not be tempted to buy more kit. I don't need any more skis. I do not need any more skis. And since I'll be trying again to hang up my season hat after this winter, I shouldn't need any more skis in the near future (oh, and Switzerland, location and job as yet undecided, for the winter).

Yeah yeah - you can't leave us hanging like that. Do you have a proper job lined up, you lucky thing?
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

I got two. Now to decide between them. And neither are 'proper jobs' in my mother's eyes.

Well your Good Luck worked Wendy...I'm in...yeha
After hearing such good things about these skis, I thought i'd go for it...I never really bother with offer type things.
Well the email was certainly a brightner on such a dull morning...now which ones to choose...this may take some time
Thanks again Wendy for the heads up

Yay! Well done, Spudski! They apparently had a huge lot of applications this year, so that makes it extra special that you got in.

Well after winning a spot on the Dots Dozen, Whitedot skis went a step further and offered me an Industry Pro Deal Instead...which i'm well chuffed about.
The company have been nothing but a joy to negotiate with. Very Professional.
The skis turned a up a day after being sent...excellent service...and they also upgraded the bindings i ordered and pre drilled the holes...fantastic.

Very well packaged and the quality is astonishing.

Just can't wait to get out on the mountain now and give them a blast.

Anyone else out their using them?

The Dots Dozen is still going btw...so mybe worth giving it a go.

Here's a pic of the beauties to give a size comparison with 'normal' skis.

Looking forward to hearing any experiences on how to get the best out of them...

Many thanks again Wendy for the heads up....

Ahhh, you're gonna get looks in the lift queues all the time now. Glad to have helped! I hope you love the skis as much as I love mine.

Not sure it's really a 'gimick' when pretty much every ski maker out there has been doing it for several years...
