I was thinking of picking up a pair of the Donner Party's and was wondering if anybody on here knew anything about them. Seems like they would ski the ARG's but a little but more float with the added width, seem like they got a tad bit more rocker, and wouldn't have the problem of a narrow tip in heavier conditions. If you know anything, please let me know. Peace.
I made the purchase. they are super sick and they look like they are gonna kill lines. they are really really light, and the flex is perfect, i would say somewhat comparable to an arg in flex. overall if you don't have a lot of groomers to ski, then i think you will very much enjoy these.
Thank holly and drew for the info. I am pretty sure I am going to pick them up next time I am at porters. It would be the fourth ski in the quiver, so they would only be used for what they are made for. How is the flex compared to the ARG's and does it have more rocker? Thanks again guys.
I copped a pair, super sick skis. I can't wait to ride them.
I ski at Stevens Pass

Thanks a bunch guys. So lets see, tad softer, tad wider, and a tad more rocker than the ARG solves all the problems and qualms I had with the ARg's. Thats all I needed to know. Lets just hope Porters still has a pair when I cruise up next. Thanks again guys.
The Bibbys are going to be more versatile than the Donner Partys with the narrower waist and regular sidecut. Unless you have a distinct spot in your quiver, the Bibbys will probably be a better all around choice.
