  1. “Try it, you’ll like it.” Just spent my first day on the Hellcats (11/20/07) at Alyeska. Great in the powder with the weight for a powerful ride. Remarkably quick edge-to-edge for their weight and width. They get better when you get your speed on. My new ski of choice.

  2. Took out my new pair of Hellcats for the first time at Alyeska (1-11-08) for night skiing. High speed carvers on the main trails, deep soft bumps off trail or carrying speed down the steeps, they handled all with ease. Matt is right, they give you a smooth powerful ride; they run like a luxury sedan dialed in with pure muscle car horsepower. I am looking forward to wearing these things out.
