People either love or hate the bacon design. Its not meant for charging but is definitely a fun ski for deep days. Just like im sure you've read before in a million reviews, the bacons are designed to ski like a snowboard and they feel different then others skis. A fun ski for fooling around. I don;t know how you ski. My days at golden are usually spent charging so I like a stiffer longer ski for the stability and control at fast speeds. So if thats what you want seriously check out the JP's or the ANT's. they are a way different ride then you prophet 90's.
As for the guy who was doubting goldens snowfall. 10m to date this season. The resort has been rocked by storm after storm. There isnt alot of places you'll ever go with the steep terrain and dry pow that are like golden. Henca tgr's reason to film with seth and jeremy jones there earlier in the winter.
