Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Movement Ulimate Reviews

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead

Wondered if anyone has demo'd or bought the new Movement Ultimate Ski. I am currently riding the Rossignol Savory 7s (163) with a Solomon guardian binding. My old skis were a revelation in the powder compared to previous skis but I'm really not enjoying them on piste or hard pack, holding an edge or carving isn't really a option and I'm fed up with skidding round most turns and in fact I think they have eroded my confidence and technique to a degree.

My husband I an do a bit touring usually more day tours than hut to hut but also we do use the pistes a fair bit to access a bit of back country so I want something light enough to put a pair of touring binding on. I'm really interested in the new Movement Ultimate as it has great reviews but being so new I'm struggling to get reviews from anywhere other than Fall Line etc and also I've been recommended the Blizzard Black Pearl but from the reviews I can't tell if they will be too piste focused and not as much fun in the powder. Trying to get a one ski quiver is probably not viable so I think it we skied Japan again we would just hire skis as the Rossis weren't really wide enough there and I think I went too short too given the rocker. So really focusing more on Europe and mixed conditions, does anyone have any experience or advice between the two options or can suggest any others, also length wise for both any recommendations? I'm 5ft 4 (163cm) and 57Kgs. Any advice greatly received. Cheers

Admin has put all the reviews up from the demo days at Manchester and Hemel.
The Ultimate sounds like it fits the bill nicely , despite the light weight construction it still skis very well.
Offers a good option for free touring and will give you good lift on the deeper days.
I would go towards the 168 as due to the rocker the effective edge is a lot shorter.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?
