I was looking for a ski with fairly specific dimensions. The Snoops satisfied my requirements, so I went for it. I haven't skied on much else other than Armada AR5's and 4frnt MSP's in the last 5 years, because I liked those skis. I would call myself a bump skier that loves skiing park and trees and all-mountain. I was looking for a quiver ski that would be better in powder and all mountain than the MSPs and AR5s, but that wouldn't destroy my bump skiing. Granted, I have K2 Cabrawlers for bump skis, but I still like to ski bumps with my all-mountain skis.
So, after my first day on them, I've been able to put it through it's paces a little bit to form an initial opinion. Basically, they rock. I've never skied a more fun ski. The AR5s and MSPs have been muting my skiing enjoyment for the last 5 years and I have not known any better. I had no idea there was so much more fun to be had. I was able to arc out smooth turns on yucky variable east coast snow, and the skis power into quick turns with a snap. They are incredibly playful and powerful. They seem to want to be in the air, and you can easily launch off little bumps and it feels like they are spring loaded. I haven't had a chance to ski them in powder yet, but I'm very excited to. They seem like an amazing all-mountain ski.
I did ski a few bumps, but coming from AR5s and MSPs which are slightly narrower and have a smaller sidecut, the Snoops were a little bit too bouncy in the bumps. I knew it was going to be a compromise to have a wider and slightly stiffer ski, but I'd imagine it's just going to take getting used to (I hope) It wasn't impossible, but it just isn't ideal for skiing bumps, but not many skis above a 90 waist or anything with a lot of sidecut are going to make a great bump ski, so yea. I'll deal.
Overall, it was a very fun day, and I felt like a little kid on Christmas when I first started getting these things on edge.
PS. I got them in 176cm. I'm 5'9" and 170lbs. I mounted them half-way between the center mount line and the all-mountain line.
