Comments on 2012 Blossom Overlimit GS180

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Bought these last summer. First day using them was yesterday. Lake Louise, mostly front side blue runs. I had a need for speed, groomed or lately groomed runs  not mogul adventures.

 

Snow was deep solid base with one cm to 5 cm new snow on top. Some runs had moderate refrozen crud, up to 3 cm chunks.

 

LL being what it is the conditions also changed at times from open empty runs, to around the next corner the run was full of a group of Ski School students negotiating with the slope. But I do sincerely love ski schools - gotta keep the sport alive.

 

So I was skiing fast, mindful of the people ahead of me.

 

The skis never failed to hold an edge. They never failed to dig in when I needed to stop in a short distance. They did not flutter or flap about or chatter. When I blew into crud fields at speed (whiteout conditions in two cases) the Overlimits did not even react, they simply kept going as if nothing had changed.

 

These are excellent skis.
