Nordi Patron/unleashed hells in deep powder

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Anyone ski either of these in deeper pow; 18"-36"?  Experience?  

 

My concern is good float and turn initiation/tip engagement with the lower splay and overall profile.

I have the patrons; ski em long; no tip issues.

Tail takes some getting used to.... Yet seeks the falline & is able to bomb!

just wanted to update my own thread.  

 

I haven't had them in anything more than boot high but the performance of the Patron/unleashed is amazing. What a great feel underfoot.  This ski is incredibly versatile. On the groomed it skis more like a 98 than it 113. Its remarkably stable and easy going and has been surprisingly good in the soft bumps too.

In the powder it did what you expected it to; good float, the low splay has not caught or speared anything. I really like the tail on the ski;  on the groomed it doesn't wash out and theres enough sidecut to finish turn but will easily release for drifting turns.  I ended up at +1 from the recommended line. WOW....  love this ski.

Freaking surfboards. I usually ski pow with a fairly tight stance but these bank so solidly that I widened my stance enough once that the rooster tail from the inside ski nearly blew out my outside leg. They love deep powder. Really fun with a foot or so over bumps too.Fast. Chargers.
