98mm skis(with rocker) east coast groomer, if this isnt a carved turned I dont what is.

the thing is when skiing I tend to not ski where carved turns are wanted or needed. IE not on groomers.



what's that, about a 10 degree pitch, max? You often post up images on flat snow. what's the point? you can do that on absolutely any ski made in the last 15 years.

eh its a GS race hill. taken from a couple hundred yards away. 10 degree look like it anyways but youd be very wrong.

You call that hardpack.  That ain't hardpack; that's hero snow.

This thread is stupid.

 

Magazine reviews are a waste of time.  Every review is biased.  Tell me how long the ski is, how wide it is, and what the camber/flex is like.  I can fill in the blanks from there.

 

Does anybody actually buy boots based on the review that they got?  Same thing goes for skis.

 

But I still buy the Freeskier/Powder/SKIER/Backcountry gear guides, and I will continue to do so.  I just don't read the words.

look at the snowboard; it doesn't even get the downhill edge off the snow. but if you say so, I just didn't see it that way.

Magazine ratings= whoever pays me the most in advertising gets the best review. Standard procedure.

 

Regardless, I ski a 113mm ski almost everyday. The rest I ski on a 96mm Mantra. I dunno about you, but I don't ski on groomers if I can help it (unless i'm training or working on something). Off Piste is much more fun, and a wider ski is so much better here. Might as well get something that excels at the skiing you enjoy, and "handles" the rest.

 

IMO groomers are a stepping stone to take particular skills elsewhere.
