I've purchased about 15 skis in my life and for the price on this ski, you cant beat the performance. The width is perfect for any type of skiing. Just read the reviews that poweder mag and ski mag wrote! I rode this ski hard this year and cant destroy it and Im hard on rails. Enjoy

Steep trees, afternoon bumped out groomers, big tables, lunch and then back out there, powder stashes and homeruns. If you ski resorts, occasionally take off work for powder days and ski like everyday is your last, then you'll probably like the MSP. Matt designed and redesigned this ski around the resort lifestyle and the race for freshies. Dual turn radius, wide and stable shapes make this your ski, open to close, day in and day out.

Due to my responsibilities in all of 4FRNT's product design, I often forget how well my ski performs due me testing everyone else's shapes. Its clear in my first couple runs when I am strapped into the MSP that this puppy reigns supreme. No offense to the other models, they also ski extraordinarily well. Its just the MSP is so manipulative in all around conditions. I can literally bring one ski with me everywhere and never wish I had something else. It eats the crud, rails high speed groomed and stomps like nothing else in the park. I'm stoked my name is on this beast.
As written by CR Johnson (USA):
The MSP181 is my all around ski. It skis all conditions and all aspects of the mountain very well. I put this ski to the test in powder, spring snow, and took it into the park, to find that it was great everywhere. The size and design of this ski makes it a great all mountain ski for everyone.
As written by Erich Kunz (USA):
The MSP is clutch for spring riding or those days when it didn’t snow a foot over night (who skis on those days anyway?). The MSP has smaller dimensions than other fat skis, but they are sturdy and can hold their own in all conditions and terrain situations (park, too).
The uber-wide VCT and EHP overshadow the MSP's stellar performance in powder much the way the STL and TNK (not reviewed) outshine it in the park. But nothing else in the company's arsenal transitions from the upper mountain to the pipe like the MSP, 4FRNT's most versatile ski. If you home hill gets between 250 and 350 inches a year, the MSP is your huckleberry.
BEST IN TEST
4FRNT's flagship model had testers raving about its ability to Mach and hold turns on hardpack. The best long-turner in the bunch, it skied switch well too. PLUS: Just enough flex to make them playful without sacrificing performance. MINUS: Narrow profile plummeted like the dollar in powder. TESTER'S TAKE: "Skis longer than it is - very stable at high speeds." - Rick Greener
