BD Drift - Sweet for the deep

Unlike most ski reviewers here, I am OLD school ( started skiing in the '60's) and have very slowly moved up to fatter skis. This is the fattest ski I own. Unfortunately I am only weekend skier and had an accident last Fall that hurt my early season skiing. So the photo below was my first great powder to on these skis. And they were awesome. Even though I have them mounted Tele, I mostly quit dropping the knee about 2 decades ago. I can proudly call myself a Tele skier again. I can drop a knee with confidence now, no Tele tip dive. Even open it up and rip some Big turns.
I did not get these out till about mid season, just as the Wasatch was getting some rain and weekend after weekend of wind. I did not do so well on wind scoured and crusts. But I won't blame the skis, but they did feel a bit grabby.
