A classic big-mountain ski because, as ever, the Gotama turns easily on steep, variable terrain, rails hardpack, and floats well. Like the Mantra, it bites early and pushes back throughout the turn.
Confident, lively, and highly maneuverable.
Lacked a little stability during high-speed straightlines.
