I ride my hojis everyday here at jackson hole and I love them for everything. The full rocker makes them super playful in tight spots and bumps, yet the 30 meter matching turn radius the 4frnt does works wonders for charging down the fall line and not getting outta control. Obv on super icy shit they arent the best, but if youre a confident and competent skier you will be good to go. Im 6'2" and 175lbs with gear and sometimes wish I had the 195cm versions when im flying through chunder and cut up snow, or when its a super deep day. That said, this ski likes to be driven on the tips and go fast in all conditions. Ive bought and sold a few other skis since owning these because nothing has the same feel of playfulness and still being able to be pushed super hard. I do need to get me the HOJIs big brother, some 196 renegades!
