Pros: Stable, Floaty, Turnable, Crud Buster, Forgiving Absorption
Cons: Flutter at HIGH high Speeds, not a Bump Ski , not for ice carving
The Scott P4 is a High performing all mountain ski that forgives variable terrain and skier errors. Hitting a wide open groomer on a bluebird day at high speeds effortlessly smiling into every simply executed turn. The soft tip and slightly early rise sucks in the terrain and sends it right to that titanium underfoot, initiating a securely executed foot placement and transition into the next turn. That same tip to foot transition cushions and secures crud plowing and powder pillow landings. It's a gas being able to fly down spring condition trails floating the water slush and leaving a 12 foot rooster tail behind with everyone else on the slopes. I have to say the SCOTT P4 has been the most all around
fun ski I've ever owned or ridden in most conditions. I've had few finer days than the 2011-2012 variable condition season than I had riding my P4's. By the way I like the rough top sheet that resists scratches and preserves the retro graphics. I stand corrected to regarding the early rise,, upon closer inspection, it flattens out right at the beginning of the tips,,and essentially has some camber throughout. That reinforces my opinion on just how soft that tip really is, it will bound out of the snow effortlessly.
