Great first pair of "fat" skis

If you've been skiing for a while and are starting to get a little curious about all that deep, fluffy stuff, these are the perfect sticks to get you rippin powder like the pros.
It's not a very stiff ski, so if you're already a really experienced/aggressive skier, look elsewhere.
I'm 5'7, 135lbs and a pretty experienced skier. I ride these in a 171cm, and use them as a resort/side-country setup with some Marker Barons.
They hold well edge to edge and make nice arching turns with a little pop coming out.
I do feel myself out-skiing these on really deep days, and find myself wishing for a stiffer pair of skis for the really gnarly days.
For everything else, these skis work great. Again, I would suggest these for an intermediate/casual advanced skier looking for a first ski for powder.
