BlueHouse Skis - Maeven 189

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Does this ski live up to the hype?  I'm a Utah native so it would be great to support the company, and I could get a pair for under $400.  I'm looking for a rockered powder ski that's great in open bowls, crud, trees, etc.  Wouldn't be using it as an all-mountain ski, just for pow/crud days.

I wouldn't say that Bluehouse has ANY hype. FWIW BH doesn't manufacture in Utah. Like most "indie" ski companies they are paying the same Chinese or Eastern European ski factories to pump out a design

I have a pair and it was my first venture with a super wide rocketed ski. I keep them out in Colorado in a locker. Unfortunately I only have skied them a couple of times.For me I felt like I was skiing on two snow saucers like the kids sled on. Fun smeared turns in powder which is what they are made for , but sking the Mavens in anything but powder for me was not enjoyable. I do not know how durable the top shet is I managed to take a pretty big strip off the top sheet along the edge behind the heel piece after only several days.
