You can take them around the mountain but they aren't going to be a whole lot of fun on groomers or hardpack. With their huge waist and fairly small sidecut, it is going to be difficult to put them on edge. They would work well for sidecountry touring and are not rockered. They have traditional camber and sidecut.If you have the legs, you shouldn't have trouble piloting the Comi in all conditions. With the effective edge at 150cm, I've found that they are pretty quick for the size and you can make turns of all shapes on them. Sure, they're not the greatest when snow is super firm, but you'll be in the park for those days. They weigh about 10lbs which isn't really light for a backcountry ski, but should be alright for short sidecountry hits.08/09 Comi's are not rockered but the 09/10 model will have tip rocker.
