Are they durable? Sure…I haven't had any really durability issues after a season of hard use, they are showing wear though. Honestly, they are a park ski and they will take a beating. WIth that said they are no more or less durable than fishers of years past, nordicas, or volkl walls. Feel free to PM me with specific questions. Ski depot has last years (same as this years) right now in 181 for $299. I would definitely jump on those as that is the same as pro deal pricing.
