    Anybody else have problems getting rocks stuck in their Tuner skis? I've had three rocks stuck today alone. Each time it happens I lose steering, then notice that the snow is pushing out the front of the ski while riding. So I have to stop and dig out a rock. Very frustrating! Do I have too much ski pressure or something? I cant believe there's not something wrong. No, I'm not riding on a gravel trail.... I'm in Old Forge and the trails are decent.

    I've had it happen, get the Cat skis. They are better and cheap.

    I rode Old Forge the last three days and didn't pick up any rocks in my tuner skis. I like alot of ski pressure so it surprises me that you picked up three of them.

    Or stop riding on rocks.

    Honestly, I've had it happen a couple of times with the Kimpex Arrows. One time, I had to jam a tree branch between the keels to pry it out.
