Pros: has taken a lot of hits, great on many different mountains, stiff
Cons: heavy, not the best on icy snow
I got this ski a long time ago... before that I was on an Atomic something...
This ski has been with me for many years as my ski level improved... but the past two years i feel like i can ski better if i had better skis.
I am short and light weight... and was barely 5' and 100lbs when i got these. I preferred longer, and hoped i would grow into them. These are 163cm. I enjoyed how sharp they would turn and respond. a few years ago i got better boots to go with the skis. They have taken the brunt of out of bounds skiing and spring skiing in the PNW.... but sadly the base and the blades are too worn out now. Skiing on icy snow is now a struggle.
It was a great intermediate ski. I find myself wanting something a little shorter only to make tree skiing easier. I love these skis.
