I had a few days on the softer nomads at loveland, which aren't made this year. But if I lived in colorado I'd probably buy them for every day stuff. I thought they turned well and held a good edge, had a nice pop to them. Just an all around good ski, fun to jump off every little bump and easy to press/butter. Very fun. Probably wide enough the float through stuff, especially with the rocker this year.
I also rode the stiffer ones like twice, but I'm 5'5" 120lbs and they didn't work well for me. They felt a bit more dead, harder to turn and just weren't my style of ski. I don't know if the rocker ones have the stiffer or softer core though. I'd imagine with rocker the stiffer ones wouldn't be as stiff feeling if you're light like me.
