Gear Buddy Opinion
The Kore series was developed by Head to handle all aspects of all mountain skiing. The women's series was designed to blend resort and backcountry skiing seamlessly. The 99 is a great one ski quiver for people who ski all over the globe. This ski can handle all types of snow. Consider it a jack of all master of none.
I now have had 20 days on these skis. They are great on steep chopped up runs and ski powder like a much wider ski. I really love how light they are which contributes to a very light easy swing weight. You can make quick, aggressive turns all day long without fatigue. My only concern is that the construction; no top sheet and light core, my result in these skis not being very durable. I already see more wear along the edges than you would expect for only 20 days. With that caveat it is great everyday ski for Jackson Hole or similar area.
