How are the boards when it comes to chatter? Going like to lifts on the groomers.

I wouldn't really call it chatter with these skis. More like tip flop. The tip is soft and since its rockered, it sticks up off the snow on groomers. If you are going fast it will be flopping around a bit, which from an observer's point of view looks sketchy as hell. But actually, the pontoon is pretty stiff underfoot, so even when the tip is bouncing around like crazy, the skis don't really feel all that unstable. Just to add to this a little bit, If the condition is really icy and steep the ski feels like a lot to throw around, but if it is just a normal groomer it is surprisingly easy to ski. Not my first choice on a non-powder day, but manageable.
