    Being able to ski these thigh deep tree lines at Alta and feeling like my bibbys were connected to my brain and laughing and hooting by myself is the best feeling ever. Its what gets me through the summer. Thank you Click image for larger version.

    As a longtime EC slasher who was always on whatever my shop had in stock or I could get on proform......I am now searching out stories like this. Companies like Moment have a great story to tell, and I am making an all out effort to support their product. Even though my EC shop doesnt carry Moment, and a customer seems like they know what they looking for, I will mention Moment and their website. I think they appreciate the recommendation because its based towards the customer, not just what the shop carries.

    As that same shop guy that sees hundreds upon hundreds of skis come across my work bench each year, it always gets me pumped to install bindings on a ski like Moment!

    You will have to stop by again in Sept.

    We tore down the offices, expanded the showroom, and now offer tons of other products along with boots and boot fitting. (and free beer).

    Updated. Thanks Meter Man!

    Whats up with the M1/Garbones? Just how burly are they? I have heard rumors. Are they similar to something like Monster 108s, just lighter?

    196 Governors measure 195.6cm.

    190 Wildcats measure 188.2cm.

    Melee, how much would a 196 Donner Party run me?

    Probably a ton, unfortunately.

    We would have to reassemble a mold and redo the CAD for almost every element of that ski to be adapted to newer manufacturing processes.

    Its the mold and CAD time that really add up for some of these custom jobs.

    Carston Oliver (creator of the Chipotle Banana) stopped by the factory this week and we have some unique super deep day pow specific design ideas we want to finalize.
    If things work as intended we may have mid-season release on our hands. It wont be a big as a 196 Donner Party, but it will be just as pow specific....

    Been a while since y'all had something bigger than the bibby (my inbounds daily driver)... I'm intrigued. Luke - is this gonna be light enough to drag uphill? Was looking for a touring ski fatter than my gpo's (was thinking protest) but now very intrigued.

    This ski wont be very compatible with skins...

    Its going to be a deep day, cat/heli sort of ski.

    at the end of the season I sold my Bibby 184s and begged Luke to sell me one of the early run Wildcat 190s...cause Im American and bigger is better, dammit! Its like when your ole lady goes in for an augmentation...are you really hoping she comes out with a C cup? Sure the Cs are great...a proven size and shape...versatile and lotsa fun...but wouldnt ya really wanna take the DDs for a ride? Just the thought makes me want to huck my meat

    Pretty stoked about the new Deathwish being stiffer. I'm supposed to pick up a used, older version ('17) of the 190 this year - if it turns out as promised, might go with the new DW for Tahoe soft snow DD. 666 can't stop raving about his.

    Bibbys are pretty at rock ski status, but damn I loved those.

    Post up any reviews of the 18/19 DW if you got em.
    sproing!

    Hell ya Cono! I cant wait to get on my 190 Wildcats.

    Sometimes I get afraid the Deathwish is too soft, but then I see 666 absolutely crushing on them.

    The tips and tails of the old 190 DW were a little soft. The new flex makes the DW a charging machine.

    I'm of the opinion that the ideal ski stiffness kinda operates on a lopsided bell curve. Like, the person who really appreciates a stiff ski isn't the best skier on the mountain. The best skier on the mountain is strong enough and well balanced enough that they can get along on a somewhat softer ski just fine. It's the guy that's a good skier and likes to go fast, but doesn't have the strength / balance / agility to plow through chunder on a soft ski, and needs something stiffer as sort of a crutch.

    And I am most definitely in the category that uses stiffer boots and skis as a crutch to mask my lack of strength and technique. But I'm ok with that, because going fast is fun.

    I completely agree. I ski with this 21 year old kid thats like 6 190lbs and skis on 175 Line Chronics or some shit, and 180 Soul 7s. Hes probably the best skier I ski with. He goes big and fast every single lap on those short noodles! I try and keep up on 184 K2 shreditors, and can make them work, but need stiff boots. I am not athletic enough for soft boots anymore. I ran into that problem last year.

    That said, I do see a purpose for stiff skis too. I replaced 184 Shreditor 92s with 188 PB&Js for this season. Its not a plank, but stiffer than most freestyle skis. I like the stiffness for speed on firm snow. I am over 200lbs, and can bend the stiffer skis to make em play a more.

    I just always want to buy the DW for trenching around, and now it seems like the 2019 version is more conducive of that. Good news!!!

    Enjoy those GTs dude. Theyre a great ski, but just didnt see enough use with Bobbys and Comis in the quiv. Great meeting you and hopefully well get some turns in this winter.

    To chime in to this thread since Im a *bit* of a moment fanboy 7 currently in the quiver, and I think Ive owned 15 or so pairs thus far, plus 4 more pairs in the fam Im definitely grabbing another pair of Deathwishes. Still one of my fave skis ever, and Im pumped they got stiffer.

    Considering the Commander 98s to replace my OG Enforcers/HaBs. Down and armada are in the running for that slot as well, after I was wholly unimpressed with the FX95 and Blizz offerings. What happened to skis with tails?Would love to hear from anyone thats been on the 98s. Especially if youve spent time on the pre-neuter Enforcers.

    Good to know. Makes me remember that first pair of skis I ever toured on was a pair of moment rubys. I took an angle grinder to the tips so I could fit a skin loop over it...

    Agree on the GT's - the one day I got to spend on a buddy's ghost trains in bounds was one the best. Interested to see what you guys come up with

    I gave up DW's for my old 190 bibby's but I suck at skiing. DW's great for tooling around, above average through chop for the width and weight, fun ski - just like something surfier personally

    When will there be more info on the wildcat tour 108? Have shifts that need skis. Was thinking wren 108 tour layup but if it ends up being my only tour setup I think they’ll be too heavy.

    Any loose ideas of what 'mid season' means? Somewhere along the lines of January/February? I always wanted a pair of Ghost Trains but never quite pulled the trigger. I have some Meridian 117's that I've really enjoyed though.
