  1. I skied the 89 at a demo day last Friday, Dec 7, at Loon Mountain in NH. Lots of man-made snow on top of a firm base. I found the 89 to be very responsive, and easy to turn. I did take it to the edges of the trails where there was plenty of loose snow, and it handled very well. It made it’s best impression on a steep, somewhat bumped up run called Angel street. Conditions on the run continually changed from slick and scraped off, to piles of loose snow to long sections of 4-6″ of powder on the edges of the trail. Despite the varied conditions, every turn felt the same; solid and grippy. The only difference from one turn to the next was the sound.

  2. I bought the older version of the 89ti because it was cheap and frankly I do not like it! I’m an expert skier, 6’2 and 210lbs but the ski is just scary. As long as I have it on edge or base flat and more or less in the fall line it is stable and does what I want. However, if I want to shut it down at higher speeds on harder surfaces it begins to chatter like crazy and becomes very hard to manage. I can accept chatter like this in a powder oriented ski but not in such a narrow firmer snow orriented ski. I’m very curious wether they improved this behaviour in the new version.
