I ski the whole mountain.
Excellant feedback from the ski. From getting off the lift to getting back on this ski let you know what the edges were doing. Very easy to start the turn, held well on the frim snow. Hands down, had the best grip of the 5 or skis I demoed yesterday.
I found myself having the confidance to ski faster and harder even though this is very early season for us. When it came time to do the small bumps on the left side of Lower World Cup these things snaked through with little or no effort. When I cut over to the double fall line they took that with ease.
Pros: The ski made me feel like I had been sking hard all season and my muscles were in great shape. These things absolutely wanted the rip, the faster and harder I skied them the more they said, "is that all you got ? "
Cons: The one problem with these skis: they make you feel like a better/stronger skier then you are physically.
