Usually Brighton in the winter cause it's cheap and easy access O.B. and the summers I'm kinda where ever, usually the mountains.

I haven't personally skied these yet but I have skied enough skis with this same features to know that these should do great in any kind of soft snow and chunder. These should do great in the trees, handle the moguls if you really wanna ski moguls constantly, be good on the groomers and make the icy areas you encounter manageable. With the tip and tail rocker these will be really maneuverable and easy to throw around. They look fun!

Yes. As long as the snow stays kinda soft they should do alright. If it's hard icy groomers than they're probably less than ideal. I'm 6'2"/195 and demoed the 192's last year on a soft day a.k.a. powder day and they were amazing do whatever you want in the snow nimble. But your not buying these for the groomers. I Have a friend in his 50's that thought the opposite about the groomers but we are also on the opposite ends of the skiing spectrum, he skis lots of groomers and I try to avoid them. I did find some sun baked ice in my adventures and they at least held an edge like most skis do. I think this ski should do just fine in the PNW.

I'm 6'2"/195lbs. and skied the 188's last season and didn't have a problem with them. They don't have as much rocker in the tip and tails as others but you don't notice, cause they are still really nimble in the trees and tight spots and surf the pow with the best of them. Also having less rocker in the t&t they have more edge contact for those GS turns.

These are pretty nice and easy to install. once they are on and tightened down they don't move. They were a little difficult to get the lock rings on the grip but a good whack on the table or something gets the job done. As for comfort when riding they have plenty of grip and you don't have to worry about your hands slipping off. I would get another pair in the future.

The words of my sister. This hoodie is full of surprises! I got a M, which is perfect for me because it has a comfortably snug fit, but not snug to the point of tightness. The sleeves have thumbies and a pull-over part so you can cover your hands completely and the hood can be tucked away. The material is fairly breathable, keeping you warm but not too warm. The neckline is a little high, a bit "turtle-neck"-ish, but not as tight, allowing free movement of the neck.

The words of my sister. This jacket is amazing!! Its super light-weight and completely water proof. The breathable material allows you to transition easily from the outside to the inside without the warm, muggy feeling. The jacket is not insulated, but mine (a size M) has room to add layers beneath. It also only reaches the top of the hips, which doesn't bother me, but if your looking for a bit more coverage, you might like something else. Overall, great jacket, highly highly recommended.

So when you get these skis in there intended environment, that being powder or anything soft and slarvable they are amazing! They also handle the groomers quite well. In the pow pow these things just play and have a good time. If you want to go big GS turns you can, if you want trees and lots of turns you can do that too. If you want to through them sideways into a McConkey turn and just keep on rippin' they do that too. They also make landings in big snow amazingling soft. So as long as the snow stays soft these skis are amazing, when it starts to get hard you can survive but sreiously, your only buying these for one purpose. For the powder of any type these skis do it all and make it alot of fun.

Well, I finally got to try these the other day and they were very nice. The first thing I noticed when I got these was how light they were. It's nice not feeling weighed down by your boots. They're very comfortable too and not too stiff. The older Boa system had a tendancy to press too much on the top of my foot and leave me aching by the end of the day, but the newer Boa Focus set up allows for better fit and comfort all around, and I never felt any discomfort. It's a great boot.

This is a solid board! The flatline tech makes it a much smoother, and faster ride than a normal camber would. Turning with the slayblade was very easy and comfortable. I never felt like I had to put much effort into. The board also floats nicely in the powder and the Harshmellow under foot adds a little more cushion for the hard and/or choppy stuff. I don't do a lot of freestyle, but I'd definately recommend this board to anyone looking for a good all mountain board.
