Pros: Very stable, surfing like turns, fast with good manuverability
Cons: not as nimble as narrower skis and does not handle groomer exceptionally well, but that is not what it is designed for.
Skiied in powder from 4 inches of fresh to 3 feet of powder. The Pontoon skis beautifully regardless of the depth. This ski is just plain fun, if you like the feel of surfing in powder. There is definitely a different feel to to the ski than say a narrower ski in the 102mm width. In steeper terrain as in single or double diamond the ski is fantastic. YOu don't feel as if you are on two skis but rather one board as in a surf board or maybe a snowboard. Fantastic stablity in deep powder with speed. Large surfing like turns that I find great fun. It also handles well in less steep terrain, and as little as 6 inches of fresh. I found it handles surprisingly well on the groomer on the way back to the lift. Certainly not where it shines, but the ski does better than I thought it would. A really fun ski that you may find yourself using a lot more than you think that you would. Top sheets do not get beat up as readily as some of my other skis.
