This has been the worst ski season in recent memory here in New Hampshire - no snow, fluctuating temperatures, rain, ice - the worst! The AMPs have saved my season. They are big, they have fat, rockered tips, they have sick graphics, they turn heads in the lift line. I have yet to ski them in deep snow - but I know they will be a dream to ski. I have been blown away by how well they hold an edge on firmer, groomer runs. I can lay out big, fast, arching GS turns with confidence. If they carve and shred the frustratingly bad hard-pack of New Hampshire all you lucky SOBs out West will love them. For you East Coast dreamers who live by the mantra, "its as deep as you imagine it to be," this ski will bring the fun back into a horrible winter. For you suckers out West complaining about your "lack" of snow this year, this ski will slay the open bowls and bring you back to the chair with a smile on your face. All the time rocking the purple and green geometric top sheet.
