I took a pair out at Snowbird a few days ago late in the afternoon and pointed em towards all the lousy snow I could find. Duh they're good in pow, but what else? I'm surprised to say that they rally pretty much everything in front of you. Nasty chopped up traverses, funky cut up crud, mis-shaped bumps, and even groomers were fun. I was hating on these all year last season just on their looks but admit to being wrong now. The only thing is you have to be comfy standing in the center of your skis on the groomed as there isn't much contact with the flat snow. As a former East Coast Ice Jibber, I'm "lucky" enough to be okay while skiing around kinda upright. Off trail though, just point em! Seriously. I think I'll wax up a pair cuz it's gonna nuke this week. See ya at the bottom!
