The 186 RMU CRM is a fun ski that carves on hard snow and floats on powder. At 101 underfoot 138 in the tip and 128 in the tail this ski has a 19 meter turning radius. A rocker tip and what they call a skin clip tail that rises slightly gives the ski some float in the powder and makes it quite maneuverable on and off the groomers.
RMU CRM Ski Review
These skis have sintered bases, they take wax well and are super fast. The 2.2mm edges are resistant to compression or blow out, solid poplar cores and what Rocky Mountain Underground call “military grade sidewalls” made out of ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene round out the durable build of the skis.
Style and Design
If you are one of those people who cares about what the graphic on their skis look like, you need ask yourself only one question; “How do I feel about the Colorado state flag?” If you don’t care what the graphics on your skis looks like, stop lying to yourself, yes you do.
The state of Colorado means many things to skiers; From Aspen and Vail to legal weed to the Rocky Mountains, which Colorado loves to claim as their own despite the fact that they span more than 3,000 miles across two countries.

Sure, Colorado does have fifty-three peaks over 14,000 feet, but if elevation is what you think makes for good skiing, you must be high. I’m not saying I don’t like the way the skis look, the blue red and yellow color scheme includes three of my top eight favorite colors, but I did get some sideways looks carrying them through a couple Wyoming parking lots.
These skis have a fairly soft flex, which makes skiing at high speeds in variable conditions a little scary, however they are snappy and responsive on hard snow and fun and floaty in powder. They are made out of durable materials and feel like they will be around for a long time. This is good to see as a lot of skis on the market seem like they are made to last one or two seasons.
I skied the rocky mountain underground super crm in everything from powder to dust on crust, to icy moguls and they were surprisingly versatile and fun.
