Description

A fearless leader rules over a vast domain.

A powerhouse big-mountain ski, the Moment Governor Ski likes to think 'big mountain' means all over the hill. A versatile yet fat-waisted rockered-tip ski, it can float through pow yet has a quick edge-to-edge sidewall and a flat tail for stability and strong rebound in tight turns. Traditional camber underfoot means you can carve it up when it's nice and chalky, windbuff, or firm. The Governor's stiff ash and aspen core refuses to be swayed, and layers of fiberglass matrix and carbon fiber quiets chatter without adding weight. The big mountains of the world have many sides, and they all succumb to the Gov.

  • Front Rocker tip and traditional camber
  • Sandwich construction with UHMW sidewall
  • Aspen and ash wood core
  • Fiberglass matrix and carbon fiber laminate layers
  • 2.2-millimeter Rockwell 48 steel edge
  • 1.2-millimeter Durasurf 4001 sintered base

Incredible Big Mountain Ski

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a Moment whore. To date I've purchased 5 pairs, the Donner Parties, Garbones, Bibby Pros, Deathwish, and the Governors. I love the company for several reasons. First and foremost customer service. The first pair I ever picked up were the Donner Parties and before I ever even skied them they contacted me and warrantied them due to a topsheet they found was delaming too easily. My Bibby Pro's took a core shot shortly after I picked them up that was massive, but I was fortunate enough to meet the owner at SIA and he warrantied them off a core shot due to poor epoxy that year. This season I snapped the tip of my new Governors on an unseen rock and within a week I had a fresh pair. All building materials (except the edges) are sourced in the US, they're made in the US, and they follow sustainable practices as much as possible. This is the kind of company I like to support.

Onto the Governor in specific. My review may be a little skewed because I have them in the 196, but I'm 6'3 and reasonably aggressive and got them as my big mountain I want to go fast and big today ski. They are perfect for this, if you can find a speed that the Governor can't handle props to you because I have not. I love the significant taper on the tip, it allows for a playful and smearable feeling in powder while the overall stiffness and flatter tail provide a ski stable enough to go machabillion and stomp anything you can. And while they're stiff, they're not 2x4 stiff like the since discontinued Garbones, adding just enough forgiveness. They blast through and over crud with a wide enough waist, and while they're not ideal for hardpack they're manageable. I don't take these in the trees often and when I do I feel like they're trying to kill me, but that's because I got the 196, I'm confident a smaller size would handle fine.

These are reasonably forgiving big mountain powder skis for fast and aggressive skiers, and I would only recommend them to expert skiers.

Looking forward to skiing these

I tried the Moment Deathwish recently and caught the Moment bug. I'm very anxious to ski these as I'm a big fan of traditionally cambered ski with an early rise tip (i.e., Liberty Double Helix). I think these skis will be a great all a rounder based on the turning radius, flex and dimensions. I also like the idea of supporting a small ski company.

[I'm back to give a "long term" review of these skis....after skiing them a ton at The Bird, they're great (for me). They're very predictable, rip on the groomers (nice pop from the tail) and perform nicely in the POW. One "downside" is that they're light but if driven, they ski very nicely. Good resort ski and probably a good touring ski.]
