I was looking for a ski around 100mm underfoot but was having a hard time wading through the choices, so I went to the experts for their opinion. Lexi from the Backcountry.com community provided a glowing review of Moment skis she had skied last year, so I thought I would give them a shot.
I cannot assure you that my judgement had not been compromised, but I had some of my best moments on skis in years on these the first day out. That might be because the first morning I got these to Solden, Austria they had just gotten 6" of fresh. It could be the fact that I managed first chair to the upper mountain, or it could be that these things just rock. My first two runs were completely untracked, and these skis kept me smiling the whole way down. But despite the high expectations these left me after my first two runs with them, my stoke didn't fade throughout the rest of the weekend. whether I was carving on the corduroy, slicing through crud, or boot packing to get some fresh lines, I was always impressed by how these skis handled.
Thank you Lexi, and I hope anyone else that picks these up has a similar experience. That would reinforce my theory that they are magic skis.
