They say

Century skis will help female skiers rip in powder with a super light build, fat 102 waist width and a powder rocker tip and tail for awesome flotation

We say

The Century felt particularly good in tight areas and moving through trees where the serious float provided by its huge rocker and generous shovel made it easy to initiate the turn. In these sorts of conditions it always delivered a round steered arc, and was easy to predict through the turn. It’s mainly in these short to medium arcs in deeper snow where they felt in their element. In long fast turns and on the piste they felt a bit more unreactive with less stability.

Likes longer, slower turns in the off piste. Felt nice through round turns. Didn’t feel that reactive on the piste
