Quit waffling.

The Moment Belafonte Ski is a busy guy, so he doesn't have to time for a lot of "Should I/Shouldn't I?" at the top of burly line. If you don't make up your mind and send it, the Belafonte's liable to take itself off your feet and shred down on its own, leaving you stranded at the top with an embarrassing butt-slide in your near future. If, however, you man up and give 'er, the stiff, directional, and hard-charging Belafonte will be your new best friend. Its straight, aggressive shape and damp construction was inspired by comp skis, so you know it likes to go fast, huck cliffs, and rail powerful turns, but this year's version has been tweaked to make it slightly friendlier at more moderate speeds.

It all starts with Moment's Mullet Rocker, which uses an early-rise tip to provide decent float in soft snow, traditional camber underfoot for stability and power in variable junk and on hardpack, and micro-camber sections fore and aft of the binding for insane edge grip when the speeds are eye-watering and the snow quality is questionable (if you want to see the Belafonte's comp heritage, there it is). The tail's only slightly raised, giving you powerful turn finishing and plenty of stability, and the new Belafonte has a dual-radius sidecut that makes it considerably more fun at slower speeds. The whole package is based on a stout aspen and ash core, which is stiffened with fiberglass laminates and carbon-fiber stringers, outfitted with rugged and powerful UHMW sidewalls, and finished off with dampened 2.2mm steel edges and a lightning-quick 1.2mm Durasurf sintered base. There's a reinforced binding-mount layer under the foot, too, so you won't have to sweat the possibility of ripping out a heelpiece when you're maching down high-consequence lines.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been riding Moment Skis since the original Comi many moons ago. I've seen their line of skis go from one to two, two to five, and so on. The Belafonte is a ski that was born as a hybrid of the original M1 and Garbones skis respectively. These original skis were hardcore big-mountain competition skis and left no room for error.

The Belafonte added more shape and sidecut for more improved groomer performance for those early morning carve sessions. In addition, Moment added tip rocker and lessened the stiffness a bit to give it a more lively feel and improved performance in deep snow. Well...that definitely did the trick as I fell in love with these skis and quickly became my daily driver in Tahoe. At 6'2' at 200lbs I rode the 194cm exclusively. From powder, to groomers, to corn and summer slush in late months at Mammoth, these skis excelled in literally every condition.

Fast forward to 14/15, the addition of Mullet Rocker created a triple camber ski that performs wider than its waist measurements. The ski grips that much better on ice, much more stable at speed, easier to slash around, and much more lively around the hill.

Any other thoughts on sizing? I'm same height and weight and love my 187 Belafontes that have been my daily driver for 3 seasons. Not afraid of longer skis but for patrolling I like the maneuverability and agility of the slightly shorter length for my daily ski. Think I/you would overpower the new 186's when charging through variable snow?

I would think they would be fine...have you tried the Deathwish? Those are some fun boards that pretty much work everywhere and my current 'go-to.'
