Stiffer than a triple Jack and Coke without the Coke
My kids wanted to ski powder/steeps/trees so I went on these and they were incredibly fun and easy going for that as well. Really float well. The only downside (also a great thing) is if you lean back, it is like turning the turbo chargers on! This is a super versatile very fun ski. If I was in my first year skiing, I probably would go with something softer, or just a shorter size of these

Advice on my top three skis
Metal in a ski doesnt automatically make it an expert only ski. The blizzard Rustler 9 has some metal but is super accessible, it's still wider than you need. I would recommend getting Dynastars that you liked for low tide conditions and just rent/demo fat skis if you happen to catch those conditions when you travel. I'm not a fan of the Kore skis for resort skiing, they are a tricky combination of light and stiff

Very Fast and Very Stable
The stiff design and the camber profile allow this ski to hold an edge in any conditions. The float on powder was surprisingly great especially since it's a heavier ski. I would not recommend to beginners as this is a slightly harder ski to turn that takes time getting used to. If you are a speed enthusiast and love dropping into challenging steep runs than this ski should be on your list
