I'm not a fan of next year's Hellbents from what I've seen. 132 underfoot does reestablish it as a powder specific ski, but with that additional girth, it's undoubtedly going to lose some of its versatility. While the '10 Hellbent obviously wasn't made for groomers, it skis them fairly well for such a wide and rockered ski. Next year? I don't know what to expect.
