I may be short-changing the Kuro's on versatility. But, these skis are mega-wide, and rockered. How versatile can they be?
If I had a 5-ski quiver, I'd add the Kuro's in a heartbeat. These days, 3 is my max. I've had as many as 7, and it became complicated
With that constraint, I'm confident I'll get more all-round use from my Goat's, than I would from Kuro's.
Finally, Kuro's may be fine for resort terrain (lots of steep, deep stuff everywhere). It's just that regular access to fresh isn't what it used to be. Once the masses are released, they stampede. Even "safe" stashes soon get poached.
But, you're a BC trekker, fresh may be virtually all you ski. At that point, to me, Kuros become a worthwhile investment.
What's worthwhile reflects your cash, habits and priorities.
