Willis Richardson wrote a review of Black Diamond Drift Ski on February 15, 2011
This ski epitomizes the new ski revolution with a rockered tip and lots of side cut. There have been questions about the flex but the ski is to be skied using the side cut laterally and not pushing on the tip. Old schoolers want press on the tip and drive the ski. You don't have to do that with this ski. It floats in powder, light for hiking and is at home on the groomers. The ski is made for the new style boots that are laterally stiff and offer softer forward flex. This ski really performs with a equally balanced center stance. Look and goes where you are looking on a dime without the need for any effort. I am a short swing skiing powder junkie.
