Pros: Wide range of abilities, great on hard pack and powder, stable,
Cons: Graphics aren't the best, needs a shorter turning radius
These are excellent skis for 'everyday' use on a mountain where you get lots of powder, generally have softer conditions and room to open it up. On super deep days, you might want a fatter ski or if you get a lot of very hard, icy conditions, you'll want a narrower model. It tends to like a longer turn so if you like short turns this isn't your best choice. I like mine enough that I just got the 2011 version which has nicer graphics but is otherwise unchanged (as far as I know). I have the 186, am 5'10" and weigh 180 lbs and ski with a pack most days.
