Keith: Frankly both skis perform very well. I'd have to give the edge to the storm though. Reason being is that I found the storm to be more user friendly in a wider range of conditions than the Havoc. The storm does it all as far as the ski goes. When choosing either ski, pay close attention to which boot and binding combo to integrate into the ski or you'll be bummed...

Scott. Here's the right answer to your question. The differance between the Jak and Jak BC is this: The Jak has a metal insert in the topsheet of the cap. This gives the ski higher performance in hard snow yet very user friendly for both on and off piste. The BC version has a carbon fiber insert in the cap which makes it lighter and therefore better for touring and fresh snow yet more difficult to stay on top of in hard snow conditions. Same holds true with the storm. If you like to lift assist and backcountry, I'd go with the Storm.>> I am a former Karhu rep and intimate with construction and performance. If you like a high performance set up that can do it all ( Alpine/tele turns and touring) pair the Storm with the Rottefella NTN and NTN boot from Scarpa. You'll never ride anything else again!DS
