The Curated Take

4.7/5

The Moment Wildcat 108 Skis are ideal for advanced to expert skiers seeking a one-quiver freeride ski. They excel in powder, tight spaces, trees, and chutes, offering a playful feel while remaining stiff enough for jumps, cliffs, and high-speed charging in variable snow conditions. The rocker-camber-rocker profile provides nimbleness and solid edge hold, making them versatile for all-mountain use. However, they can be unforgiving for skiers who are not prepared for their energy. Overall, the Wildcat 108s are a top choice for those wanting a single ski to handle a variety of challenging terrain and conditions.

Expert Reviews of the Moment Wildcat 108 Skis

Quintin Mills The 2023 Moment Wildcat 108 is great for advanced to expert skiers looking for one ski to rule them all. If skiers have the grit to ride these doggies in the saddle, I promise they will treat them well. They're maneuverable to slash powder stashes, thread tight trees and chutes, and playful to bounce off just about any bump, lip, cliff, jump, or cat track in their path. But they're not all fun and games. These are some serious crud busters in variable snow conditions, hold their edge when I want to lay down some super G turns, and give me enough backbone to stomp cliffs with icy run-outs. They have a rocker-camber-rocker profile, aka the mustache rocker, and it allows the ski to feel nimble when I need it to but solid when I lay it down on edge. Beware, the Wildcats might ski someone if the skier is in the back seat and not ready for the energy they can put out. The rocker in the tips and tails makes the ski feel playful and float on pow, while the camber in the middle gives it the guts to perform at high speeds and variable snow conditions. Overall, they are a true one-quiver freeride/all-mountain ski that I can charge on any day of the year.
Tyler Nied I absolutely love riding these skis. They are the ultimate all-mountain ski and are the only skis I would trust in any conditions. They have the flex and pop to be fun to play with in the park. They have the size and maneuverability to float on powder but stay nimble enough to weave in and out of tree lines. I wish I had four pairs because I keep running them over rocks. My one complaint with any "all-mountain" ski is that they start to sink a little when the snow gets really deep, but they do find a way to keep pushing through even when I can't. These are great skis. I would buy them again and again!

Turn Ease

5/5
Quintin Mills gave 5 of 5 stars. The rocker in the tip and tail reduces the effective edge to make it ski a little shorter than the length indicates. It also has a more progressive recommended factory mount setting that is a bit more forward, so I feel more on top of the ski to make quick moves. They feel nimble despite being 108mm underfoot.
Tyler Nied gave 5 of 5 stars. They turn like a 100-foot underfoot ski, which is impressive for a ski of this size. They can absolutely turn and cut on a dime, which is what makes them so much fun as an all-mountain ski. Anytime I go to a wider ski, I can't help but dream about these.

Playfulness

5/5
Quintin Mills gave 5 of 5 stars. I can feel the energy released through these skis when I go to pop off a jump or make a jump turn. I have so much fun cruising these around, looking for side hits, rollers, and cliffs to pop off. It's a true freeride ski with enough dampness to support me on big landings and icy runouts.
Tyler Nied gave 4 of 5 stars. So this is where I found my biggest knock on this ski. They are playful in powder and turn great in trees but struggle on standard side hits and butters. I never feel off balance, but when I land off a kicker or pop a butter, they leave me wanting just a little more height or cushion.

Durability

5/5
Quintin Mills gave 5 of 5 stars. I've shredded the edges on rocks, gashed core shots, and tossed them in the back of my truck for the past season and a half, and they hold up against much abuse. All it takes is a little TLC and a little P-tex here and there, and these skis will last me multiple seasons.
Tyler Nied gave 5 of 5 stars. They handled everything I threw at them in the trees and barely got a bump that wasn't a user error. The only problem I have had was when I hit a rail on them and ended up putting a pretty hefty mark on the topsheet. So, as long as someone doesn't ride like an idiot, these skis will last.

High Speed Stability

4/5
Quintin Mills gave 4 of 5 stars. The mustache rocker, camber in the middle, and rocker in the tip and tail give this ski the best of both worlds in terms of playfulness and stability. Now, it's not the most stable or dampening ski out there, but it holds up well when I point them straight or make big sweeping turns. It also gives me enough support for stomping big cliffs and skiing hardpack snow.
Tyler Nied gave 4 of 5 stars. A straight-lining steep vertical had me fighting the ski to get back on course. So, for anyone needing speed and a love for groomed face runs, I recommend going with the 184.

Versatility

5/5
Quintin Mills gave 5 of 5 stars. Powder? Yep. Dust on crust? Yep. Hardpack? Yep. Groomers? Yep. Variable snow conditions? Yep. It really doesn't matter. I will ski these on any day. It takes away the pain of bringing three pairs of skis to the mountain daily or worrying that I chose the wrong ski. Freeride/big mountain skiers should look no further if they want a one-quiver setup. 
Tyler Nied gave 5 of 5 stars. They are true all-mountain skis that riders can take anywhere and throw around, and they just come back wanting more. I got these skis for their versatility, and boy, was I impressed. They handled early-season slush, pow, chop, rock face drops, and everything in between.

Flotation

4/5
Quintin Mills gave 4 of 5 stars. This isn't strictly a powder ski, but it floats on deep days and everything in between. I've had some deep pow days on these; they stand up to the test. The rockered tip and tails, creating a shorter effective edge, paired with 108mm underfoot, allow me to make big turns but also weave in and out of trees in deep powder.
Tyler Nied gave 4 of 5 stars. These skis offer an amazing amount of float for a true all-mountain ski. The malleable yet rigid shape helps propel me to the top of some of the deepest powder days. I would give flotation a higher rating, but the ski gets a little squirrely in 25+ inches of fresh pow and is a lot of work to keep afloat.

Carving

5/5
Quintin Mills gave 4 of 5 stars. The Wildcat wasn't built for the racetrack. However, they hold their own when I lay them on edge. Moment builds these skis with a 2.2 Euro Edge, and they heat treat them in-house to make them more durable. I feel comfortable carving these skis on groomers, but they also will bust through variable snow conditions on edge.
Tyler Nied gave 5 of 5 stars. These skis take a bit to get started, but once they move, they love to carve! I had a great time weaving in and out of runs and even took them through a few downhill courses in my time riding them. Carving in and out of trees, moguls, and just icy crud is also a blast.

FAQs

What do you love about this product?

Quintin Mills The best thing about this 2023 Wildcat 108 is its versatility. I will not hesitate to ski this ski at any mountain, in any conditions, and at any time of the year. It is a one-quiver freeride/all-mountain ski I can take with me anywhere.
Tyler Nied I love the skis because they look amazing, their design is sound, they're built for powder, and they love to pop. These skis shred no matter the condition, and I always look good while riding them. They are stiff underfoot but nimble under the tips to keep me afloat in powder while still giving me strength and control on hardpack. Flexible enough to be taken to the park but stiff enough to remind me there's always more mountain to ride.

What was your favorite moment with this gear?

Tyler Nied I had a lot of great moments with these moment skis, but the most memorable would have been the 25+ inches of fresh I got to ride with these at Kirkwood. They rode like a dream for all but one run where I tossed myself off the wave cornice. They floated, turned, and handled everything I threw at them that day with ease. I really took them through the wringer: couloirs, steeps, drops, and deep, deep Tahoe powder. They handled amazingly for their ski type.

Why did you choose this product?

Quintin Mills I'd owned and skied previous models of the Wildcat, and I just couldn't get enough. Previously, I had been on the 116mm underfoot and skied it basically every day. Then, I got on the 108mm underfoot, and my world changed. It's still floaty in the powder and playful on jumps, but it isn't so big underfoot that it felt like a burden to ski on hardpack days or variable conditions. As Moment Skis puts it now, "It's the Goldilocks of the Wildcat series. Not too wide, not too narrow. Juuust right." I've literally skied them every single day the last season and a half in Tahoe, Colorado, and Utah, riding pow days, groomers, big mountains, steeps, chutes, cliffs, trees, and jumps.
Tyler Nied I wanted something that could pop, float, and handle crud. I needed a true all-mountain ski that could really handle any type of snow from top to bottom, so I chose the Moment Wildcat 108. The design just pops. I can't speak highly enough about the art they put on these skis. Honestly, they have a permanent spot reserved on a wall in my house when I'm through with them. So, I chose these skis based on looking like the true park skier I am and was pleasantly surprised when they skied as good as they looked.
