The Movement Thunder. Excellent performance all over the mountain, especially in off-piste, powder conditions. Swiss made, solid construction. You can't go wrong.

you can, however, get your info wrong. They aren't actually MADE in Switzerland.

Check out the last paragraph on the page. Swiss made.

No, Swiss based. Big difference. They are very careful NOT to say where they are made... made in Africa wouldn't go over so well.

Well they do have snow in Africa...how bad can they be?

Hey, I'm not saying the skis are bad, they aren't, they are REALLY nice... they're just manufactured in Tunisia, not Switzerland.

Whiteroom is correct.. I have a pair and they are made in Tunisia.. The person who oversees manufacturing is Nani Tua.. Skis are VERY well made...

Read first paragraph. I believe they use the term "hand-crafted in Switzerland"

Either way, they are great skis and I highly recommend them.

They are great skis, and, at one point they were made in Switzerland. That was well before they launched a US distribution, today they are manufactured in the same factory the G3 has been using for the past 6 years

They are on the top of my list to demo this year. I have read and heard great things...
