The 171 filthy rich are absolutely amazing. Just picked them up for the second half of this season and they are by far the best park ski i have ever ridden. AND they still manage to rip groomers even with dulled edges. Super playful. Drop a center mount on these bad boys and dont ever look back.
(for the record in my opinion these are better then 09 El rey, 08 Pipe Cleaner, 09 AR7, afterbang, and the suspect)
If the east coast doesn't have a winter then America will do what it always does. Go to a country that does have snow and take that. Just like how we went to Iraq for oil
