I highly recommend this ski. Super fun all over the mountain. Super poppy. It floats very well too. Flex is pretty close to perfect for a pow ski IMO. Soft enough to beth those butters and presses, but charges hard. Tails are pretty stiff tho. One of the only skis I can land backseat on and not wash out. Does amazing when landing stuff into pow. Rips the groomers, especially for Pow Ski. Really could be an all mountain ski. Id say its an All mtn POw ski. Swing weight is low. Overall id just highly recommend. Really awesome ski. You won't regret it! PM me if you have any more questions!
Info about me. 5'11 220lbs. level 3 skier. Grew up on the ice coast just moved out to utah specifically brighton.
Conditions. 18" of powder and tracked out powder. Groomed surface when not in the powder.
I really liked these skis. They feel like a mid to slightly stiff park ski built for the powder but they can handle their own when you hit groomed terrain. The camber underfoot really helps you out when you get to a groomed surface. You can still tell that their is a shorter contact point when you were skiing them flat. When you put them on edge it takes away all the squirlyness of them on groomed surfaces.
For the 18" of pow they had enough float. I could tell though if it were to dump another 10" I was going to be diving a ton. I could turn the yle just fine but not quite on a dime. When I took them into the trees they were plenty maneuverable enough. The yle also charged hard and supported me when I landed backseat jibing off of rocks and pillows.
I did not spend anytime riding the yle switch though I think I could land and ride switch in them just fine. I have no experience with switch riding in pow but plenty on ice.
I would recommend the yle as a everyday ski for out west when you are in bounds. Can jib off of everything and had a park ski feel brought to powder.
