    You can always come out and ride the crowded blue groomers that are sure to be open at Crystal.

    You and most other skiers! I have a buddy who grew up in Idaho and skied regularly. He’s probably a low level advanced skier. He now skis only a few days a year. He skied my 185 Enforcer 100’s and...

    Agree with just about everything you said. Enforcers can be seen as a compromise to really aggressive skiers. I bought Enforcer 100’s as my “skiing blue groomers with the kids ski”. I realized that...

    A little heavy on the up, but I bet that makes for a killer side country setup!

    I’ve had my kids mount a lot of their own skis, but never mounted skis with my kids attached to me! Good work!

    Thanks for taking the time to share your impressions. Agree with everything you said. I’ve never had mine in very firm or icy conditions (we had 600” last season) so glad to hear they held their own.

    I’ve got a few people in line for these, so I’m inclined to make them disappear soon.

    I think the “I’m so happy my Goats are so light” is kind of cute. The reputation for demolishing crappy snow isn’t because they are “light skis”.

    Mass has everything to do with it.

    C&D is Tour Layup. The 189 weighs a tad less (~2400-grams) than the stock 192 BG118 (~2430-grams) per ON3P. His 191’s are over 2,500 grams. With the veneer topsheets, I’d bet closer to 2,600.

    I could see you going +1 due to your shorter BSL. Trust the design of the ski. The longer shovel is why they truck. The shorter tail keep them loose.
