It had snowed quite a bit overnight in Whistler so I decided the biggest of the three skis would be a good option to start. Although this is not a new ski I had not previously had the chance to try them so this was a first try for me.
I was up early so at the top of my test run I found plenty of deep snow and the Magnum felt perfectly at home. The ski has an almost surfy feel to it and its very easy to turn it deep snow.
Lower down was more cut up, and the snow was heavier but the Magnum had no problems at all. The tips drove through the wet snow and the flex felt supportive and stable.
On hits the pop was good but the real surprise was just how light the ski was, it was not until I was in the air I realized just how light they were. For a ski that is so light they really don't get deflected by heavy snow at all and they drive just as hard as any other ski. Whatever line has done with these skis is certainly working.
Lower down where the snow was even wetter and you had to stick to the one groomed trail and the skis did struggle a little to carve on the hard snow, but no ski this wide would perform great in those conditions.
Overall I was very impressed, for such a light ski you never feel like you will over power it.
