For what it's worth, just got back from two weeks at Mammoth (including the 125 inch dump over the four days of New Year's weekend). It took me about three days to really get the feel for how to stay on them, but OH BOY OH BOY are they boatloads of fun. Just what I was looking for...rip up the pow, no worries in the crud, fly down bumps, coast the groomers. The only little teeny nit-pick is that when I'm going reeeeally fast and then hit a quick speed control check turn, they chatter just a bit... I'm never going back to the old dogs again! It is kinda weird to ski them in a 170cm length when I remember skiing on 207cm Olin Mark 7's. Just an all-around fantastic ski, IMHO.
