I'm looking to pick up a replacement at the end of this season when things go on sale, and I have been seriously considering the Black Crowes Sevun. I demoed it for 2 days while in the alps earlier this season and really enjoyed it. It is a big chunk of ski at 117 mm underfoot and stiff.... The snow I was on was on the softer end, with wind effected snow the closest thing to ice I could find.
I'm curious if this bad boy will be manageable as my Tahoe (Kirkwood) daily driver?
Specifically I'd like to know what other people who have ridden a 110+ in similar conditions think about it. I know it will be fine in the soft stuff, its mainly the hard icy groomers we have had Jan/Feb the last few seasons that worries me.
I'm 6'2" , 220lbs. Ski more power based than finess based. Skiing for 15 years and would consider my self reasonably advanced. I have done some racing (gs / SG) and love to point it.
