...I mainly used them on groomed trails and they performed very well....
I'm wondering how they handle in moguls and off trails in fresh deep snow. I'm going to the Alpes next season so I'm sure I'll be skiing more of the fluffy stuff than usual...
I haven't skied that particular ski....is it the beefy, crud-busting Motion or the light one?
I've been skiing the Carver V3 for the past two years, a nice ski for learning the fall-line with...but will NOT throw you into the next turn...and are pretty good in the bumps. The V3 and its descendents are essentially intermediate skis with less than Volkl-tigerpaws edgehold and a far-than-beefy construction...you really have to peel the tomatoes on NewEngland boilerplate and its 65-66mm waist doesn't make 8"+ of powder anything to play in(compared to a midfat)...although having said all this, I've been on the 2001 ski.
If Volkl wanted this ski to survive, I think they would have worked on these deficiencies. Then again, they may not have.
IMO, there are better skis out there....but judge for yourself....you'll be riding em'[ August 19, 2003, 02:53 AM: Message edited by: HaveSkisWillClimb ]
