I loved my XXLs (2010-2011, 170), but sadly they are on their last legs, so I need to replace them and am looking for suggestions. About me: 5'10, 150 lbs, 45-50 days per season, usually bell-to-bell. I mostly ski at Mammoth but also some Utah and Colorado. There were a number of qualities that made these my all-time favorite skis: I loved their thin lightweight layup. They had great recoil and snap, but at the same time were very stable in fast GS arcing turns, incredibly easy to flick from edge to edge, very responsive in the bumps but they felt monorail-like at warp drive speeds too, great on everything from firm to smeary butter corn, and even up to moderate depth powder. They were about as close to a 1-quiver ski as I ever owned. (I have a pair of Gotamas with Marker Duke bindings for deep powder days and back-country...about the only times I will put the XXLs in the locker.) I had previously been a Volkl skier, but once I got on these I was hooked!
I'd really appreciate suggestions!
