These skis handle like a champ in just about every condition. On deep days they are super floaty and playful, surprisingly so for having a somewhat modest width underfoot. On crappy days they are powerful and consistent and remain stable even at high speeds and in choppy snow. My favorite thing about this ski is how it feels in the air. I ski them -2cm from DFC and the swing weight feels perfectly balanced. Everything from a cork 9 to a screamin semen feels smooth. If I had to pick one ski to use for everything for the rest of my life - the Opus would be my pick.
