Also, Do Work and orangegondola and the rest: I recently read through last year's Magic thread on TGR and had a lot of vicarious fun just doing that. I can only imagine how awesome it must have been to have been skiing it.
Meh, the Mojo 90 is what I was on all last year and I'm keeping them for this year too... I'm 5'9" and about 170ish, and skied the 176s. Great skis- stiff enough to bomb, enough sidecut to make nice tight turns, light enough to billy goat around and durable as hell. I'd give them a big thumbs up, but if I was looking for a one-ski quiver, I'd be looking in the 95-100underfoot range, like a BRO, Mantra, Prophet, etc. but that's just me and I'll be the first to say that Mojos will serve you just fine should you buy them.
As for the fun factor, it's impossible to convey the good times. As much fun as it looked like, it was 100X better than that. I will say with 100% certainty that last year was the best year of my life. It is the yardstick by which I will measure all years to come for sure. That said, I'm positive that this year will BLOW IT OUT OF THE WATER! Can't wait to meet you and show you around!
