I received a review from a customer recently that I’d like to share. The pair in this post is the “his” model of this his/hers combo build.
I have to say I am a big fan of these skis. I know they were built with powder in mind, however, being that they are a medium/stiffish flex, they perform really well in a variety of conditions. I really have been using them almost everyday last year (Even though the winter was a bit lame) I skied a bunch at Wildcat, Berkshire east and then 4 days in Jackson Hole. All of the east coast skiing was done on groomers and icy conditions. Obviously not ideal conditions for a wide ski like this, however the stiffness allowed it to really bite into the crud and hold a line well. I really enjoyed how they felt everywhere. I have Dynafit Beast 14 bindings on them so I was able to do a few small tours at a local mountain and they did not feel heavy at all going uphill at all. In Jackson Hole we had a variety of conditions, from rain/snow almost spring like conditions. They were a blast to rip through the chutes and trees there. They really hold where I put them so the control was appreciated in some variable conditions. Overall.. I love the skis and wish I could have another pair a lil skinnier for true east coast groomer days. (maybe one day) Vin is an awesome guy to work with on the skis. You will enjoy them for sure!
