What type of skis do people typically use in glades that may have powder? I did some of this type of skiing at Pico Mtn this weekend, and it's something I'm curious about. My skis are Head Rev 80, and while I know they are far from powder skis, I have to be very careful in it because the first time I tried going through my ski sank immediately in at least 6 inches of powder and my boot popped off from me falling over. The ski was even completely submerged in the snow and I had problems finding it. Even when going slow and being careful it came close to popping off. Would it help if I increased the DIN setting a tiny bit? Or would that make it less safe? I'm 130lb 5'7" intermediate fast skier, DIN currently 5.5.
My other question about skiing in glades is the length of skis. Do people tend to use shorter skis for more maneuverability to move between trees?
