I see the add for the 26, but my mouse rolling over it does nothing. Maybe it's your browser options.
Also I've spent a good number of days on glare ice, and when it wasn't ice it was more often than not scraped off hardpack that other people call ice, and next it was (and still is) usually hard packed snow, so I've developed an affinity for dangerously sharp edges; probably the long 1 degree bevel would be fine with snow under the ski. Never really noticed any problem back in the day skiing snow with any of the old Dynastar gs skis that I rented (they were softer than my SGs) when skiing out west sans ice.
Don't bother with your base edge until you feel a need to. And the base bevel will wear out and grow just by skiing on it, so you will likely need to reset it once in a while regardless of sharpness requirements. If you do your base bevel, do it sparingly you will end up with a base high condition. In fact even if you do it right, you will eventually end up with at least a "long bevel", and unless you base bevel goes all the way to the other side of the ski (most don't), it will take it's reference from that "long bevel". Base grind is required to fix the base high condition.
I ski the same snow...I use to have all my skis at 1°. But last year, I bought a Radical 9 sl and the shop made it at 0.5° and I just loved it! For this year, I'm keeping my 9sl at 0.5 and my all-mountain at 1° but I change my carvers to 0.75°...I look forward to seeing if I will feel the difference...especially on my Fire Arrow edt! I love to carve with it but I find it a little slow to engage (regardless of the widht).
I first started skiing the 0.5 a few decades ago, when my new super-g skis came with that bevel. I think most skis were skied at zero degrees back then, so it was an easy adjustment to make. I still ski my old SGs once in a while and still like the 0.5 bevel. I like it so much that I reset all my skis to 0.5 once they need a base grind. That makes me an outlier, as most would want a bigger bevel on their speed skis.
