Solid on the groomers and killer in the pow but anything in between is an absolute nightmare. Stiff tails, so decent pop, but get ready to have your shit rocked as soon as crud comes along. I'd call it a good part mountain ski. Not something I'd recommend for somewhere that gets tracked out at the bottom. Top will be a dream but your memory will be negative from how hard you get bucked from crud. because the tails aren't that rockered, I'd recommend not center mounting. I'd go back a bit. Other than that they're great!
