Was very surprised. I'd heard that the Crossmax was too soft.I didn't find that; it ripped big GS turns on moderately steep runs with no problem on the ice. Also surprised with the hold on a 180. Short turns were no problem...very quick. Didn't get to try them in soft stuff, but with the big shovel, I think they would do pretty well. The ski did tend to lock into a turn once tipped and was a little slow to vary the shape. Overall a fun ski.

Day later than the Sollys. Snow was vastly inproved. Ski was fine in the ungroomed, but I would have liked a wider platform underfoot, being used to my Rangers. But, once I got used to it,pow and cut up were no problem.

The ski is livlier than the Solly. Couldn't find much hardpack, but I think based on its groomer performance it would be fine. Good in the bumps. Good all mountain ski. I understand that the price next year will be about $650 MSRP...a lot cheaper than the Crossmax, even with binders thrown in. I'd like to try the 74 or the fat one, which I think is around 84.
