Black Diamond AMPs
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I tried some of these at a demo day at the local mountain, and they were super fun. I don't know how they would do in icy conditions, but in the mixed groomers and choppy pow that we had, they were great! I found them to be very stable and responsive, although they were kind of hard to tele turn. Probably they would just take some getting used to. I would recommend these only if you think you will be skiing mostly softish snow, because they did seem a little bit jittery on the hardpack. Overall, I think they are great skis!
