I just decided to forego the 186 Lhasas and went with the 2013 Billy Goats. The RES concept is too much for me to ignore and the whole package sounds right up my alley. I even ponied up and got the tour core, hybrid layup with the wood veneer topsheets, well, because I'm a shameless gear whore and coudn't stop myself.
SO far beyond stoked I'm having trouble expressing it in words. Can't wait to quiverkill them with the utmost care and attention to detail and then ski them like I stole them.
Nice. You will be blown away at how much better a ski this is than previous versions. They tested a lot of different prototypes to dial ion this design. Having skied the 1st and 2nd Gen BG's I was floored with how rad these ski's can get, but still retaining their ability to get playful. Exactly what I was looking for on those days where there is fresh, but you know it's going to end up a tracked up shit show with variable snow conditions. Or a typical day on Hood.
