If you are looking to try out a new shape that draws some attention from the crowds, check out the Meridian 107 from Moment. Non-symmetrical tips and tails paired with a trippy topsheet are sure to make for some good conversation starters in the lift line.
Moment has fully embraced the craze behind fully rockered skis with the Meridian lineup, but with the intention of creating a well-rounded ski instead of a powder-specific full rocker design. The Meridian 107 is incredibly easy to put on edge. Take this ski out on a groomer or windbuff day, and you will find that it does everything you want from smooth turn initiation to holding stable at higher speeds. It would also be a fun powder ski for someone that does not want to surpass the 110-millimeter waist width. The full rocker shape will inherently make floating through soft snow very fun and easy, while the aspen and ash core helps the ski feel strong and consistent.
The Meridian 107 has a very versatile size in that it can handle groomers, old snow, or fresh powder. That being said, it shines best in untracked snow. While doable, it takes a bit more effort to maintain control of the ski when you get into any sort of less-than-perfect snow. The full rocker shape wants to take control, leaving you working to keep it together.
Ultimately, this ski is made for the person who has made, or is ready to make, the conversion to full rocker. Excellent waist width for groomers and powder, easy turn initiation, and suited for a more relaxed stance. —Dane Weister
