I have now been in Montana the past 8 days. I have skied two pairs of skis, the Blossom White Outs and the Head RNR. We have had some great pow days and the RNR's are such amazing soft snow skis. The rest of the time the Blossoms are just fricking amazing. I love Slalom Carvers (and have way too many pairs) but on great, grippy, hero rockies snow I can bend the blossoms down to a slalom arc and even at 77 under foot they are still amazingly quick. Never ever thought I would say it but I could be very happy with a two ski quiver of the White Outs and the RNRs. Both can be skied all day and all over the mountain in almost any of the conditions we get out here.
Balance: Essential in skiing and in life!

Have the White Out’s been the same ski for the last few years?

Yes. The sidewall material changed after 2015 but it had virtually no impact on the ski performance.

1. Head Monster 78 178 cm -- just about done. Not much life left in it, but the one ski I have kept for years. My true rock ski -- sad.
2. Scott Mission - 177 cm -- not the best ski for PMTS - 90 mm waist. But one of the most idiot proof and friendly skis I have found for my patrolling. I have kept it from days of associating with Scott. It has become my early season somewhat "rock" ski for ski patrolling.
3. Head Kore 93 180 cm
4. Head R n R 180 cm
5. Head Monster 88 177 cm -- great ski. My second version of the new Monster 88. This is the 2018 version. I had the prior original version a couple of years ago ( the first year of the new Monsters) .
6. Head Supreme Instinct 170 cm. I know Harald did not care for many of the Instinct line. But, this one has been an excellent replacement for my prior Head Icon tt80's (albeit it is wider in the waist). 13 m turn radius.
7. For next year coming up -- the Head Vshape V6 in 170 cm. Ready to go at the home of the Head Rep. I need to pick them up.. This may become the replacement for the old Monster 78 . It is 78 mm in the waist.
8. I'm also debating about ordering me the SS Speed in a 170 cm -- haven't had a Supershape in a while. I had three prior versions going back to the original then I went to the Icons.
