I just rode this ski for a week at Mt Baker in 1-5 feet of pow. It's a very fun agile ski with lots of float. It's decent on the hardpack transistions. Even with the tip and tail trim, it's a little hooky but it's less hooky than the obsetheds and pontoons.

I debated the mount position and went on boot center, ~2.25 cm off ski center, and wish I had mounted it back another cm. If you are a modern powder skier that ride their tales and is look for pillow hits then mount on the line, if your an aggressive skier that wants to take big mountian turns mount back a cm. I can't believe I went over the bars a few times with such a fat ski. I haven't done that in 5 years.

Since Xinjang has several peaks that are only a 1-2 thousand feet shorter than Everest, it's quite possible. Also your manufacturing question is irrelevant to how well the ski performs or is made. I've skied both Vashon made K2s and China made K2 with no quality issues. In fact the only skis I've had problems with were Austrian made but I don't assume that Austrian manufacturing is sub-par.
