Great for powder laps. Wear your light or medium weight gloves on the climbs. Slip on these mittens for the descent. No need to change gloves.

I'm onto my second season skiing this boot and am super impressed. I upgraded from Dynafit TLT 6M boots. Both boots fit my foot quite well. The increased weight is noticeable, but so is the increased performance.

I was also pleased to find how well this ski turns. Even though it's narrow by today's standards it has shined in fresh powder up to 10", soft faceted snow, and even wind affected snow. I have not skied it in firm conditions, but I have the impression it's more of a soft snow ski. As noted this ski is slower on l...
