*Please note, I originally reviewed these skis in 2010 and am tidying up my reviews, thus the new date*
One of the best skis ever made. Wide enough to be decent in the pow, super soft and playful and stable enough to crank on groomers.
Piste: I really love these skis on groomers if the snow is anything but
super hard pack. They carve a nice turn and are pretty
nimble for a fat ski. They aren't built for mach 10 but you can push them pretty hard.
Ok this really isn't home territory for the Lizzies but they are manageable. The shortish length and soft
flex makes up for the width.. By no means a mogul ski but if you venture in to moguls once in a while they won't kill you.
Super stable on takeoff and landings and swing weight aren't too bad. Not for fast spinny types but nice for slow steezy spins.
I'm not a great jump skier so i can't really guarantee this but they are really nice for slow 180s, 360s and 5s and you can carve nicely in to
spins with the short sidecut.
Rails/Boxes: Great jib ski, The
width makes them really stable to land on and you can spin them around easily enough too.
They are ok for me but for anyone bigger they wouldn't be great. The width and flex mean they float ok but the low profile tips are prone to diving.
172 was pretty perfect for my size/weight. If you are about my size or smaller (5'8-9, 135-140) then this ski will kill it all over the mountain and be ok in pow. A great fun all mountain ski or park ski for the west coast.
Pretty good actually. Normal chipping. I tore a huge hole in the base on about day 15 of my first pair but got it fixed they held up fine for the rest of the season. My second pair probably did 200 days with no noteable issues.
