We say

A soft, light, easy ski, the new 108 has a smaller footprint that last year's 122, but comes with a similar construction: a monocoque cap with a full wood core and twin rocker. Unusually, it also has edgeless tip and tail to reduce swing weight. In deep powder it's great fun, with that featherweight tip rising up to give plenty of float. Yet it's easy to pivot and make quick changes of direction. Centrally mounted, it's ideal for jibbing around on a powder day. For blasting high-speed turns, it feels a little less stable, and the soft flex struggles to grip in harder conditions.

For deep snow, the soft tip and rocker make it a breeze
