Best crossover for techy skiers

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This ski still is the best if you are a traditional, race-type skier who likes to carve and really get performance out of the ski but who wants to float more in powder. Basically, if you have never skied a fatter ski before and are looking for something that will do it all, the Mantra is your machine.

What bindings do you haver in them is this a good ski to put dynafit radical bindings for a 50/50 backcountry/resort use? I do not backcountry as much as I woudl like but when I do I spend a couple days touring.

I moved over from Fischer GS Worldcup (wicked fast, stable and yet quick with a 2l radius)... and always debated which ski would be better to segway over into a more playful yet performance all mtn & occasional sidecountry... and to hear a review such as yours gives me more confirmation I should of bought a Mantra. Ended up buying a BD Verdict (orange graphics) and though nice not a damp ski (will be selling it soon). Although I hear the new Verdict is much more damp I got a great deal on a G3 Infidel and looking to grab a Icelantic Nomad to round out my quiver. But my mind still wanders back to the Mantra!
