Bought these skis last season ('11/'12) and despite less than desirable snowfall in Tahoe, was able to put a decent amount of turns on these sticks.
One thing to note, these skis like to be on edge. The early rise with some camber underfoot works well on both hardpack and crud alike. Decent powder abilities but by no means a powder specific tool.
These are definitely my daily drivers and "quiver of one" if I had to choose. A little squirley on the flats due to the early rise but like I said, these things like to be on edge.
This is definitely a ski that you have to be on top of at all times, if you relax too much you run the risk of them skiing you rather than the other way around. I would definitely recommend these.
I'm 6' 180 lbs and have the 186's. Definitely the desired length. Ski a little shorter than you would expect too. Able to throw down some big arcing turns as well as bounce through the trees.
