The Best Skis Ever (so far)
To combine and add to some of the other comments, these skis (194s) are my everyday ski at Squaw Valley. The best I have ever skied in variable snow/hard pack off piste. Are the best also for corn and wind buff. A little tricky in deep light pow because yes the stuffness makes them nose dive but I have found if you go fast enough they will float in that kind of snow. Stomped every big air I have ever launch with these, nice stable platform. Skied over 100 days far still feel as lively as day 1. Did crack the sidewall on a big imact with a rock but just appoxyed and super glued it and it has help up perfct no negative effects. I think the sidewall is compartmentalized to limit the spread of damage so to speak. Also, have impacted or skied over dozens of rocks no problems only some missing p-tex, I'd say the most bomber construction I have ever had. Also, light, quick and great on the steeps, great all around ski. Geeze I should get some stuff from Rossi for such a great review!
