Skis.com has sick deals on the 1.0, thats where I snagged mine.@Jayppierce, not sure what Greg advised, but here is my 2 cents. Don't buy the CT 2.0 in 178. That will be too much ski for you to ski park on. Its 100mm+/- wide and stiff. I suggest the 2021 CT 1.0, which are 92mm wide, they are similarly stiff, but you can get them in the correct size for you, 173 or whatever. Skis.com has a lot of them for $420ish and they drop the price occasionally to move them. I got a pair of CT 1.0's for $315 from them using a 10% off coupon. Get some Tyrollia attack bindings for around $130 and you will be happy. You don't need a 100mm wide ski in NE as a daily driver, the CT 1.0 will be fine for that. In terms of the 2021 versus 2022, the 2022's have a much lighter weight core along with carbon versus metal under the binding area. The 2021's should be more durable and last longer. The penalty is weight, but it doesn't ski like a heavy ski, so unless you know you want a light weight ski, you will be better off with the 2021 ski. These skis are really designed for back country tricks where you are skinning or boot packing to get to some natural features. IF you watch the Faction videos, their skiers are usually on some glacier building ramps and jumps and walking back up the slope. I am not a park skier, so I am not sure what works best in the park, but the prior to 2021 Faction skis were failing when used (abused) heavily in the park. It seems they made them bomb proof in 2021 but their typical skier didn't appreciate the weight increase, so for 2022 they lightened up the ski, and hopefully kept the increased durability. Only time will tell. As far as I know, the 2021's have not had any issues.

I may find a way to sneak some More Kores in, my wife is already to The point of looking at me strangle like I’m developing some ski hoarding disorder or something.And the Kore 93 and Kore 117 ain't bad neither. I have a friend who likes his 105s a lot. (He's a Head associate.)
I'm still possibly going to get the 117.
@grandshervee Glad to hear you’re liking the CT 2.0. In 40cm of fresh, you should have been on the Anima skis instead!!
Did you ever get the bases looked at as they would be more “hooky” if they were edge high and not detuned/dulled after the widest taper points on the tip and tail.
