The EPP is the most fun you can strap to your feet. Be it powder or hardpack (just watch out for chopped crud!) this ski is sick fun. I've always skied stiffer skis (Atomic Sugardaddy, Line Mothership, ect.) but when I went to this soft little tool, my eyes were opened to a new kind of skiing. No more do I worry about landing in deep snow... the tips are almost impossible to burry. The tails are so springgy that even my non-jibbery style can get off the ground. Not the best ski for crud or chopped snow, because it is so soft that you can fold the thing in half, but I ride them on ice all the time. The reduced running length on hardpack makes it seem like you're skiing 120cm skis... it's very interesting at first, but I'm in love with the feeling now.
I love my EPP and take it everywhere. Graphics are sick too... thanks Line and EP!
