Same here North of Stowe! I use to think that my 98 mm was plenty for east coast, but the last 2 snow storms proved me ( kind of ) wrong by delivering very light, dry snow; the kind we don't usually get around here... Usually, even after more than 12 inches drop of fresh snow, I can still see my tip of even my mx88 out of bounds... But I skied that fluffy snow yesterday on my Mantra and I had snow over my boots... And I surprised myself thinking about a 115 mm ski...
we get light dry snow all the time, where have you been?
personally I would prefer much wetter snow as IMO wet denser snow is safer to ski stuff on.
and fatter skis are safer as well more float over east coast junk.
I was out on run today and stupidly took my 100mm skis to gnarly 45 degree chute and had horrible time due to 2 feet of snow and a wind crust on top. should have took the big guy out to it.
