The Hart Pulse (77mm, now imported by our own iriponsnow under the Blossom name, supposedly very affordably).
I spent Monday and Tuesday this week in a clinic at Mt. Rose with Bud Heishman and Bob Barnes. I brought the Pulse because I was anticipating hard snow and in any event I wanted something that gave quick feedback to learning new techniques.
Instead of hard snow, we got a couple of feet of pow over the two day clinic.
If Bud, Bob, or Chris can imbed a vimeo of it, there is a video of me staggering down the hill and getting face shots in hidden soft bumps with these. I admit, I was dubious and even a little bummed about having 170cm, 77mm waist skis for knee deep snow, but these sticks really surprised me.
Of course, there is also video of Bob ripping it on the same skis (177cm) much better than I can hope to, he definitely gets all mountain use out of them.
I would probably like the 177cm better, but what I had truly did perform 'all mountain' tasks in a skinny width (by today's standards).
