    The Black Ops 98 is a heavily cambered symmetrical all mountain park ski. Very different than just a scaled down 116, which is really too bad.

    Damn, I was thinking if the 98s were skinnier versions they'd be perfect for me. Thanks for the info

    I've seen 2 pair of these in JH this summer. On sale for 40% off. Call Hoback sports or Teton Village sports or the Bridger Center to pinpoint them. Can't be sure of length.

    I'm outta town or I'd go look for ya.

    I'm looking for a stable PNW pow ski that can ski hard, blast chop, be driven forward stance when needed, while also being good skiing switch and landings.

    While the Black Ops 118 seems to tick all of those boxes, I also don't want a ski that's very demanding in tight terrain, especially as this is an area where my technique defs has room to improve.

    I am just wondering how people who have skied it have found it, specifically the weight and if/ how severely that affects maneuverability in trees, tight terrain etc?

    Any info appreciated

    I think all in all its still a pretty easy ski in tight stuff. There are certainly quicker and easier options out there but for all the stuff your looking for in your first sentence the black ops is great. It's only a 186 and skis shorter due to rocker profile. Tails arent super stiff or flat so you can get backseat if needed and not get punished. I'm 5'9 135lb and have no issues throwing it around in the pine/spruce forest (ie tight trees) and techy alpine here in the Canadian Purcells.

    Awesome, thanks for the info dude, that's great to hear. Really wasn't sure about the weight as I haven't skied anything that heavy, but I'm 5 "10 175lbs so should be all good in that case.

    Very easy to ski in tight spots even with the weight. Ive got a few different pow skis but keep coming back to these. Very stable in the chop and float well. I've got mine mounted at rec but if you want to drive them consider going -1.

    Agree with all that. They are the most fun ski I have for chop. I mounted back of rec and they still ski switch pow great.
