I am a half fast skier.
- Nov 12, 2015
Long Term Update: I took the Declivity out after two days on the K2 Disruption MTi and was greeted by softening, spring-like conditions at Mt. Rose. Visibility was flat (shocking, no?) with clouds and mist moving in and out of the area, pushed by pretty high winds. While the snow wasn't quite slush, it was certainly moving in that direction with the moisture in the air and a bit warmer temps. We even got into the go/slow/go/slow funky snow that one usually finds later in the season. Again, the Declivity didn't disappoint. They were just as happy sliding around as arcing a turn with no drama. I was glad to be on a more relaxed, less demanding ski today with conditions on the hill as they were. After being on the Disruption, I definitely noticed more tip "noise" than I thought I did before, though it wasn't bothersome. That speaks more to the Disruption's glued-to-the-snow feel than any weakness of the Declivity. Two entirely different skis for two entirely different purposes. I chose wisely today!
