Skier by day, pirate by night.
The gordas absolutely kill it in the pow. Hands down. No debate. Thats it. best ski I have ever skied in the pow. They are ridiculously light and launch anything you want to, and just go massive. They will stomp any landing you throw at them as well.
Only down side is they refuse to carve a turn on the hard pack. If all you are skiing is bottomless then you cant beat these. If you want a bit more versatility check out the:
the deadbolts have you deadbolted down for sure. they keep you in when you want to, and let you go when you need to. These are pretty lightweight, but at the same time are burly enough to keep you in place. I have not had any problems with prereleasing.
these gloves rock, sooooo styley, and the ladies dig em for sure. They are defiantly a pipe/spring glove, Very light weight, no insulation, no water proofing, great grip and dexterity.
