The Filthy Rich is ON3P's premier rockered park ski. It has remained unchanged since it's creation replacing the Blue Steele for the 11/12 season simply because it doesn't need any changes. The first thing you'll notice about the FR when removing it from the packaging it is how extremely well built it is. Before even mounting it I could tell this ski was going to be awesome. Designed for the park the rocker keeps the tips and tails soft for butters and presses while the solid platform underfoot will keep you from washing out on even the biggest jumps. The symmetrical shape and flex of the ski keeps the swing weight down allowing you to spin with ease while the elliptical sidecut allows you to hold an edge in almost any condition and make quick tight turns or heel it out for wide hard carving turns. The bamboo core keeps the keep snappy and poppy and the extremely thick hard steel edges won't wear out on you as fast as your average park ski no matter what they come in contact with. This ski is truly a park skiers dream!
I have skied the filthy rich for 2 seasons now. I ski park on a regular basis so they have seen their fair share of rails and jumps. The top sheet chips, but that is not the end of the word. The edges have held up very well. There are maybe 2 cracks per ski. No de-lamination or edge pull out. The skis handle excellent all over the mountain and they are a blast in the park.
Tree he ON3P filthy riches are a very fun ski. While they are very stiff and sorta heavy they are still poppy and playful. They are a very rockered ski so if you're riding switch you wont catch edge and if you're riding pow you will float through it.
I have only used the ski for four days but so far it has been amazing. The construction of the skis are great (only Minor cosmetic damages to the top sheet). I am 5'8 and went with the 176 it is super stable and handled the early summer slush/ice of hood great. It made groomers fun again. They are poppy and flexible enough to do butters. It took me a while to figure it out since they are not noodles but now work great. I hit 25ish foot jumps at hood and they are pretty easy to rotate(First 176 ski I have ever skied on)
I ski mostly in Minnesota and mostly in the park. The main purpose of the filthy rich is a park ski. They have been great on rails. They are a little heavier ski, but they do not feel heavy while skiing, and they have a low swing weight. I have been able to butter on them, but they are still stable enough to be great on jumps and at high speeds. I not hit huge jumps, nothing bigger than about 40 feet. I have always felt very stable landing and taking off on them.
I also get to take an occasional family vacation to Colorado. When I am in Colorado I am rarely in the park. I have skied the filthy riches in about 8-10 inches at A-Basin and Steamboat. Each time I have had a lot of fun on them. They do not float the best since they are not meant for powder, but they have still been a lot of fun. I also can rip long groomers on them because of the stability of the ski.
