Knee deep freshies are the Gigawatt's best friend. At a wide 135mm underfoot, the Gigawatt eats powder, smearing turns with an extended running length and full-length, de-cambered Rocker for instant turn response that will have you dancing over the white stuff.
More surface area and usable contact length than the Megawatt gives the Gigawatt confidence on groomers and hard snow. Despite its' beastly size, this powerhouse ski will still be responsive with quick edge-to edge. Constructed with poplar and birch Internal Wall Core Technology for added pop and stability combined with Formula One Technology with three ribs and Torsion Box Construction for maximum torsional stiffness.

I bring this buttery pow ski out for the deepest of days. Not an everyday ski for the resort by any means. This big boy is at home ripping deep pow and big lines. The tip and tail rocker gives this ski a very buttery feel. Super easy to turn. The 195 is for rock stars, a ton of fun going fast but a lot of ski to haul around. The 185 should be sufficient for most.
goin to Japan? this ski should travel alone in your ski bag. Or, stay at home and crush the deepest days on these. A bit squirrely on hardpack, these guys are as Andy and Chris said, at home on big smooth lines and deep pow.
Love this ski for the 18+ in. days. It is super fat. I'm 6'6" 260lb and the 195 fit me perfect and give tons of float.
Stay off the groomers with these they don't turn on the hard pack.
Fat, fat and fat. The super deep days require super fat skis. Nice flex and feel under foot.
