I have a chance to buy some Mantra's in 177. I would like a "Billy Goat" type of ski to go along with my 190 Goats and 191 REX. My only other ski that short is an old pair of Head XP100 in 177. Those Heads are very demanding with a turn raduis of 13mm. In the past I've enjoyed skis with turn radius in the middle 20's. I won't have a chance to demo before the deal goes away. I've been skiing for 50 years.I like off piste the most.Will only ski through moguls on the way to somewhere else. I am faster than most, slower than some. Will the Mantras be a decent front side carver in a pinch? I ski mostly Kirkwood and Mammoth the most with a once a year trip to Sun Valley to ski with my 87 year old dad. The REX are getting to be a little too much work these days.
