First day on the 96. Looking fresh as hell. Holy fucking shit. We bonded instantly. These skis are so fast, really fast, no like reaaaallllly fast and damp af. I love it. They met my expectations and then some. Granted I was skiing easy terrain, but damn... Headed to VT in 2 weeks to put them to the real test, and since I bought them with that terrain in mind it shall be interesting.
Edit: tried em for 2 days at Jay Peak. Holy fuck. These skis are so fun to put on edge and carve down a groomer. Very explosive out of the turn. Skiing on ice? No complaints, it's ice lol. In the trees, these excelled. I felt so confident and comfortable that I could always pivot on a dime if needed. Going off little side hits, bumps, rocks, and small drops, these felt extremely stable both in the air and landing. Haven't got to test them on deep snow yet. I did ski on 1ft deep old snow with a 4-5" crust layer but I don't think any skis would be good in that so not judging yet. Also expected some core shots as I hit A LOT of rocks last weekend, and nada. Bases are immaculate.
