Love It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Using the S7 as my all round ski in British Columbia, mostly in-bounds, but also touring. Mounted with Axl Telemark bindings. Love the ski - it has been awesome skiing powder, and I can still get edge control on the last bits of groomer to get back to the lift. I've found them very stable to land on, and will take a lot of speed before I get any chatter on hard pack. Not so nice on ice, but that's not what you'd want the ski for. Very easy to turn, and ski shorter than their length (I'm 163cm, 60kg on the 178cm ski). Much easier to ski in the trees than I thought they would be because of this - short contact points plus tip and tail rocker. If purchasing online, keep in mind that the 178cm ski is NOT 115mm underfoot, they are infact 110mm underfoot! Didn't bother me as a short and light skier, but would be pretty annoying if you were buying online I reckon. On a scale on 7-63, I give these skis a rating of blueberry pie :D

Responded on

I picked up some clearance 188 S7's last spring. Where did you mount your Axl's and why?
