Wear your Bibby to breakfast——powder is on the menu.
The Moment Bibby Pro Model Ski is serious wear for those who like to gorge themselves with freshly fallen powder. The Mustache Rocker lifts the tip and tail so you never feel bloated and heavy in deep stuff, yet there's positive camber underfoot for carving and slicing the firmer sides of the hill. An ample 120-millimeter waist never throws you over the front and, with sidewall construction, power pressure and steering let you really sink your teeth into turns. Go full-on piggy with fiberglass matrix and carbon fiber laminate that keeps the hyper speeds smooth as silk.

- Aspen and pine wood core

- 2.2-millimeter Rockwell 48 steel edge

The Bibby Pro got an overhaul this season. The added width and taper in the tip make this a bit more of a soft snow oriented ski than the previous models, however with the camber underfoot, holds remarkably well on the firm stuff for a ski thats 120 underfoot. Skied these mounted on the factory recommended line (-6 from true center) and it felt right at home in its natural environment of pow, trees and cliffs. Not quite as versatile as the previous models, but better in the soft stuff without question.
Are these skis able to make good turns on...
Are these skis able to make good turns on the hard pack? I am on the Line Sir Francis Bacon Shorties and they are too short for me. I want a ski with an underfoot between 118 and 130 but I don't want a ski that can ONLY ski DEEP pow. Is this the ski for me?
The Moment Bibby Pro Model is a decent choice, but I would also recommend checking out the Armada Magic J and Rossi Squad 7. Both of those would make excellent pow skis that can create tight turns on the resort when you need to.
How stiff are they? Are they comparable...
How stiff are they? Are they comparable to any other ski?
Stiffness is relative, but if you're asking how they compare to most similar-dimension skis I would say the Bibby is on the stiffer side, until you start comparing it to skis with metal layers in the build. This ski can charge hard, but it's lively, not super damp, and the tail rocker makes it easy to release. If you used to race, you might like a more dead-plank feel under your feet and a ski like the (old) Bodacious or Katana. If you ski park or have a more energetic skiing style, you'll probably like the Bibby a lot. If all you want is to charge big lines going fast, get the Governor.
I am looking for a hard charging powder...
I am looking for a hard charging powder ski. i have a pair of the 2011 bibby in the 174 that i have skied quite a bit but is a little short. I am 5'10'' and 195-200 pounds. i have been looking at this years bibby in the 186cm. I ski at mt. baker and whistler and most of my days are fairly deep and very wet snow. i ski trees and love touring. would like some input on a ski that would work great for me.
Im a big fan of the old design of the bibby as well! I had the chance to demo these last spring. These have a very similar flex pattern as the old bibby, the big difference with this bibby is that they made it fatter and more floaty.
If you like the bibby you are on but want some more float then go with this bibby.
If you like the bibby you are on and are just looking to update w/ out changes then checkout the exit world from moment, which is very similar and a great touring ski.
If you want something thats even more stiff and stable, with a flatter tail thats designed to charge even harder, id checkout the governor from moment.
Hope this helps!
Hey Thanks for the info. How does the new bibby do on the hard pack and groomers?
The added "floaty-ness" of the new bibby does hurt its all-mountain abilities slightly. This bibby still rips the groomers, but I prefer the older design as an all-mountain fat ski,versus this bibby is now catering a little more to powder specifically. Still think this is one of the best big-mountain skis out there.

He likes it! The dog ain't complaining either.
This is his dedicated touring setup.
