More versitile? Bent Chetler v Lhasa Pow?

post #1 of 3

What ski would you consider more versitile and just generally better to ski on a soft day? The BC is 11mm wider, but is very playful and snappy, while the Lhasa Pow has a large turn radius but is light too.

I haven't skied the BC, but owned the Lhasa. IMO not all that versatile; the radius was in the 30's, so it could carve SG surprisingly well, but didn't much like even medium radius stuff that you want on groomers. If you slarve or pivot your turns, not so much of an issue, and the Lhasas were nice in soft snow, very grippy, OK in soft bumps, nervous in variable or stiff crud at speed, bit unwieldy in trees or tight bumps because of the flex pattern. Color me so-so on them.  This was a while back, so they may well have improved.
