Intermediate and up. Heads are traditionally damp. This one is no exception. It does what you tell it to do very compatently without complaint and won't beat you up if you don;t ask just right! It's middle of the TT scale, slider is on the flagship.
Nothing wrong with the ski, just didn;t meet my expectations and I found a new ski to take my mind away from a not so great for me purchase. Nordica Steadfast......
It is funny how taste changes....I'd been on a well worn Supershape Magnum for a few years as a more or less daily ski. I sold a bunch of old skis cheap last season....actually gave the magnums away for shipping---they were that beat.
I bought the Steadfast because it was a smoking deal from our friends at Starthaus. (really do check out the annual blem sale when it happens).
At 90 at the waist I then became concerned that I'd need a daily driver for eastern 750 foot small hill I patrol at and skli most of my time on snow.
So before the snow flew I poked around and bought these without demoing because they too were a great deal .
The Steadfasts turned out to be a remarkable ski, so much so that I skied that ski almost exclusively last season every day except for one trip to Sunday River when I demoed, among about 5 other skis, the Salomon Enduro XT 800. That was the Magnum replacement I had been looking for. I bought a used pair of XT 800's late last season.
If I didn;t have 3 or 4 pairs laying around, I'd not have an issue skiing the TT 50's these daily. I just found the Steadfast to be a much more enjoyable ski and the Enduro way way closer to what I was looking for in a magnum replacement, probably better actually, for my skiing style.
