Fishing for powder?

- Q & A
Insane!!! Id say 10/5 easy. Insanely perfect for powder and great to have in those tight couloir's where hop turning is your friend. The only down side is skining. Its extra wide so most skimo skinners are way to skinny for the sushi. After making the skinner sushi wide though you get tons of thanks from the skiiers making it a highway for them! If its a pow day this is your goto. GET IT!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Not gonna lie I basically just give anything I like and am stoked on 5 stars... but this thing is truly a 5/5 for me. A lot of my morning pre-work jaunts are in pretty thick trees since it's faster than hiking up to higher elevation, and this thing is INSANE in deep snow and tight trees. Super quick to turn, and the nose stays up out of the snow effortlessly. Still has enough backbone to rip up some big open runs as well, but obviously not the primary intention for this thing.
I occasionally have to ride hardpack on the exit, how does this perform?
