Gear Buddy Opinion
The mystic series was designed to handle the abuse of backcountry touring. These skis are lightweight, snappy and playful and help you in being efficient on the uphill and confident on the downhill. The mystic 97 weighs just 1472g per ski and is a great option for someone looking for a playful ski that is light enough to handle longer days,
Purchased these skis for backcounty, and couldn't be happier. I have also used them on days when there is fresh snow at the resorts. and been very happy with the performance. I am 133. 5ft8in and went with the 162 as I am not an agressive skier. Found them to be awesome in the powder, quick turning, lightweight, lively in small bumps, and no problem powering thru chopped up snow.
