Hard Charging!

Kuro and Shiro


Can you tell us a little about each pair of skis, and about what sort of conditions you use them for?
Kuro - Best powder ski on the market. I can't tell you how much fun this ski is. It makes skiing pow effortless. It floats in two inches of pow, making dust on crust days feel like blower days. I also like the tapertail for shmearing and speed control
