Pros: Stable, Crud Buster, Solid
I got back from Utah, where we skied in 4 days of powder dumpers, I had my Elan 82XTi's Amphibio's which were great boards but I decided I needed more underfoot...as an addition to the inventory.
I went for the Spires and they have not disappointed. I find they are true crud busters, and I can carve it up on all but bulletproof stuff.
We ended up with some heavy Midwest dumps at the season end and the Spires were a ball.
Bindings are Elan/Tyrolia OEM, size 181's.
As an aside, Elan is introducing an Amphibio 88Xti for 2013 that rocks the socks....single ti sheet with a carbon sheet and 15% lighter bindings...it's a winner...
