Pros: GRIP GRIP GRIP
Cons: not that great in deep crud
Was looking for an all mountain ski that would let you carve on hardpack and this is it. I ski SoCal a lot and when its hard and icy, this ski is my Ginsu Knife. Tons of grip, slices up the ice and inspires confidence. Works great on the whole hill but i've taken it through boot deep powder and its a real bear as you don't have a ton of surface area under foot. however.... on the groomers, you can give the alpine carving snowboard guys a run for their money laying down trenches. Two ski quiver, this one for the hardpack and dynastar mythic riders for mammoth, crud and deep. eyeing a 100cm wide ski to round out the trifecta. would buy these again if they were stolen.
