Pros: Forgiving, and stable....a confidence builder.
Cons: Definite speed limit, damp and soft, knocked around in crud.
I demoed the Lotta Luv in January of 2008. I was not impressed.
I found it too soft and damp for my liking, it got knocked around in the cut up crud quite a bit, and it had a definite speed limit where it just shut down. That said, I found that it had a HUGE sweet spot, it was calm and confidence inspiring at slower speeds, it maneuvered easily at slow speeds, it carved nicely on the groomers and it floated well in the pow. It didn't have enough pop to really shine in short turns or to make it a joy on the groomers.
Basically, I found it to be a calm, uninspiring ski for intermediate to advanced women looking for comfortable cruising in most conditions, perfect for someone just becoming comfortable on advanced terrain and starting to venture off-piste. No worries, no excitement, no surprises.
