I wanted a ski that was quicker turning and shorter for more
maneuverability. These skis are quite a bit shorter and has more sidecut than
our other skis.
They ski great. It took a little getting used to their short length, but after
the initial run or two, they felt really good. They are much easier to turn in
all conditions. The longer, fatter skis that we’ve made sometimes require a lot
of muscling to get them to turn, especially in tight trees. Moguls are also way
easier with these skis. I haven’t taken them out on real deep days, but think
there is enough surface area to keep them afloat.
