Just found this, http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/2016-2017-liberty-origin96 I didn't read the whole review.
I wonder how that tip well do when the snow gets thicker during Spring time temps ?
I remember the Salomon Pocket Rocket and Gun's would give up and get deflected by the spring crud here in NE.
My Gotama's and Shiro's drive right through that crap. The Volkl 100 eight did a wonderful job in that stuff too.
Just read a little further, this gives me hope for that ski,
The 187 cm Origin96 doesn’t give a damn if the groomers are roughed up. This ski is very stable at speed and tracks very well. I was very surprised to see how hard I could push it, and I kept expecting the ski to give up on me … but that never happened.
But the pictures show the snow to be powder not crud. I think a lot of skis well do well in the snow pictured. For those of us buying a ski and plan to keep it for a long time, this requires a lot of thought.
I'm glad the demo day we had a couple weekends back was a warm as it was and the snow was a heavy and scrapped off. If a ski handles those conditions well, it will be great on hero snow and powder.
