The Lotta Luv is a ski designed for the adventurous all-mountain skier with a good level of technique. With a 78 mm waist you are getting to experience better sensations off the beaten track than on. Very similar to the Apache Recon, the Lotta Luv is a touch softer and easier going but nonetheless a strong ski with a solid feel for some good backcountry performance- if you can stretch to two pairs of skis though do try one of the more freeride-style skis such as the Nancy or MissDemeanor, they are great fun in the deep stuff and much more confidence inspiring.
