Moment's always been pretty adamant that there's no such thing as a one-ski quiver, but year after year they press the PB&J Ski, and year after it year it crushes groomers like a narrower board, destroys powder like a fatty, and rallies the park like a buttery twin tip. Even if Moment isn't trying to make the PB&J one of the most versatile skis on the market, it just kind of keeps happening. Its secret? A nice mustache. There are no lip sweaters here, though, unless you bring your own; Moment calls its most versatile rocker profile—camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail—Mustache Rocker, probably because it's totally sexy. The camber provides plenty of bite on hardpack, letting you rally groomers and shred those bulletproof east-coast days, and the tip and tail rocker gives the PB&J the float and pivoty feel that every good powder ski needs.

Multiple fiberglass laminates and carbon-fiber stringers give the PB&J plenty of lateral and tip-to-tail stiffness, while the poppy, light, and lively aspen and pine core provides a stable, playful platform whether you're ripping groomers, surfing powder, or boosting in the park. The UHMW sidewalls prevent torsional flex, directing loads of power into the rubber-dampened 2.2mm steel edges, and the sintered Durasurf base moves faster than an electrified squirrel. Moment also tossed in a reinforced layer under the foot for bomber binding mounting, because nothing will cramp your style faster than a ripped-out heel piece on the best day of the year.

Everything they say it is

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Often called 'the' quiver killer ski - these rail, slarve, smear, pivot etc.. Stiff enough for NE hardpack, yet still soft and wide enough for light dumps at Alta. I'm 6' and 170 and the 182 is perfect for tight terrain as well as opening it up in wider ground - they are super stable at higher speeds. This was my first time riding a mount this far forward (I mounted them on the dimple) but soon realized that it's the perfect position for a relaxed sense of control. Smooth, powerful and playful allied with superb build quality - what;'s not to like? Go get 'em!

A ski for many uses

I got a pair of PB&J's as a narrower option to my Bibby. The ski proved to wear many caps well. I have spoken with folks who really liked it as a wide park ski, it's a great resort ski for all but the deepest days, and I used it for spring touring in the Sierras. The ski has a good GS sidecut and can rip groomers as well as bounce through moguls and crud. I found the ski excelled in variable backcountry conditions, spring corn, and ankle deep powder. It does struggle a little in the deep stuff as it isn't super wide (for modern skis) and the mounting position is fairly far forward, which can bury the tips when you get tired. If you are looking for a twin-tip all-mountain ski in that 100mm waist category, this is a great option. Lightweight, dynamic, fun, made in America, and skis switch incredibly well.

Great All Mountain Ski

This ski is the ultimate all mountain ski. It can shred backcountry, groomers and even the park. I've had a pair center mounted and a pair mounted at the recommended center; both were awesome!

love the PB&Js

The PB&J are great in any condition and truly are a one-ski-quiver. I used to have to decide what ski I was going to take to the resort, but my decision is now easy. They are lightweight and playful, but still feel solid in high speeds. The construction of these skis gives me confidence to drive the skis forward through crud or other variable conditions. They grip well in steep icy conditions as well. Seriously cannot go wrong with these skis. So much fun!

I am having a hard time deciding on choosing the length for these. 6'-2", 190#, expert. I was thinking about the 182's (to have a lot of fun), but the effective area may be too small. Does anyone have some advice on these or the 188's?

Hi Marc,

Either one of these skis is going to be an appropriate length for your height, weight, and ability. Rocker in the tip and tail is definitely going to make this ski a bit shorter than the advertised length no matter which one you go with. The 182 is going to be much more nimble and playful (better for skiing trees and tight lines) whereas the 188 is going to be much more stable at high speeds (better for ripping down an open powder field). From there it really becomes a matter of personal preference.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly.

Marc, I have been skiing on the 188's so far this season and I have really liked them. I am 6 feet and around 170ish. I have not skied them much in the trees yet because of a very slow start to winter (east coast). I have had them in some big soft bumps on runs where people create these bumps and they seem fine. They can seem a little bit long on some tight bumps but if you just pick a line and go through them they are tons of fun. I would say the 188's are totally worth it because they can absolutely rip but then again I have not skied the 182's. I was in your same dilemma for a long time before I bought them and I decided the bigger size was worth it and so far I have not been disappointed. I have about 12 days on them so far. I would say for your size the 188 is the way to go. One other thing to add is the straight tape length of the 188 is about 186 so I would assume the 182 is probably around 180.
