    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....

    Here ye be:

    I have a pair in the basement- deciding on bindings- thinking the new Fritschi Xenic. Will let you know when I get them out on the hill. Not much out there in detailed beta, and I'm certainly not the skier to make significant observations. I'm really looking forward to them though- the 183 is the perfect length for me.

    ETA: I'm expecting to reduce my lap time on the local tour hill by a couple minutes owing to the redness.

    I have recently bought some and mounted them with ATK Crests, haven't skied them yet but have skied both the Corvus Freebird and Orb Freebird and was very impressed with both which is what made me commit to the Camox.

    They rip, even after dropping 300g per ski from the old version.

    What about sizing. I have 185-192 pow skis. Everyone says shorter to tour but these are pretty center mounted. 183 or 188? Iím 6-2 175 tour the Unitas
    I have 182 drifter and 187 wootest

    Friend of mine is 6'1" and got the 188s, hoping the light rocker makes them ski more like a 183.

    They are light and have exact same shape and profile as all mountain Corvus. Just narrower with more sidecut

    Purchased them last spring. Paired with G3 LTs and am a fan of the setup. Using them as my spring corn ski in the PNW. Iím 6í4Ē/230. I would say the 188 is good for anyone over 6í. Theyíre light and poppy, really fun ski in the spring here. Could see them being a daily ski with lighter snow but I opt for ON3Pís for the variable snow I typically ski. The camox does get kicked around in crud but Iím pretty sure any lighter ski would.

    Only thing I would change is the binding. Iím a fan of the Ion but the LTís twist in the heel while turning. Never pre-released but also not a confidence inspiring feeling.

    Mount point thoughts? The marking is pretty progressive, I'm usually a fan of traditional mounting on touring skis for ease of kick turns and ski balance. I was thinking about mounting back.

    Camox freebird. Any reviews?

    The Camox mount line is same as my Corvus and shape is the same in camber and rocker. I like Corvus on line and will mount Camox on the line

    3g difference between skis and 2 with xenics. Airy feeling under the metal in the topsheet. Test of time will tell but theyre looking like theyll handle differing conditions. Click image for larger version.

    Two days out on mine. Today was 9-12" blower at Kootenay pass. I'm 190 lbs on a 183 and i was flying uphill and they floated remarkably well for a 96-waist ski. I'm a big fan.

    Looking at the 172 as well. I will only ski them with a Alien RS and my 177 Mtn Explore 95 is both unnecessaryly stiff and i find the tip hooky so looking for a change.

    I should get out on them at the end of the week. The closest recent ski that ive had would probably be mh praxis yeti at 94 underfoot. Ill report back if anything standout.

    I used Camox Freebird once and all I can say is, it is OK. But I think this is also because I am used to using my Atomic Bent Chetler 120 Ski.

    I got my 188s w/ ION LT out for the first time recently on a 6mi tour with boot deep fresh to chopped pow to soft bumps. Man they fly uphill. They ski an awful lot like the normal Camox (which is my inbounds ski), but the lower swing weight is really noticeable. They can billy goat all over the place and I too found them to float well. I have to imagine they'll be killer Spring skis.

    Nice! Hope you like them. They even handled a bit of wind pressed snow well without issue. Id like a few more days before they get the full pass and even more days to see how durable they are. The ease to turn the screws after i was through the metal was unnerving but i havent turned a screw into an ul ski with metal before
