To start with, the conditions for this ski were not ideal, but the sensations and performance I got out of it were enough to give me a good idea what she likes to do.
The Century is early rise tip and tail which makes for a ton of fun in the skied out area of the resort, and give you enough inspiration to put them over on edge on the groomers. In fact I was a little surprised how much this ski gripped when I was on firm groomers.
I'd really like to take them out in some spring corn. I get a feeling she'd really shine in those conditions!
This is a ski that performs well for a skier who wants to take charge, so click in and show the slopes you mean business.
