The Chopstick is the best in wide open terrain. Big Mountain skiing. It likes to make more of aSuper G turn then a GS turn, but at speed it is extremely stable and floats on anything. It might be a little stiff for some, but if you want a ski to plow through snow instead of floating on snow the Chopstick is anexcellent choice. If you want something more versatile for all mountain the Armada JJ and K2 Hell Bent are going to be better choices.
