I am a aggressive groomer skier. I want to understand how these same skis would react on a perfectly groomed mountain. We will pretend the skis all have the same flex and dimensions. The only big difference with be waist with, and radius. Will one be faster? Will one carve better then the rest? How about speed and stability? Are they so close not a lot of difference?
68 waist 174 length 17.5 radius
73 waist 175 length 15.8 radius
80 waist 172 length 18.5 radius
My favorite quote from Ski Canada
Some people dream about flying, others dream about winning the lottery, for some it’s the steamy stuff—not for mention in a (mostly) morally upstanding publication like Ski Canada. But for many diehard skiers, we have “white dreams”—equally as stimulating, and I dare say satisfying, as their steamier counterparts. Sometimes I’m alone at the top of a mountain, it’s cold and all that lies below is a wall-to-wall carpet of smooth snow. Perfect rows where the groomer’s tiller bar has been and not a single ski mark in sight. Then the dream gets vivid, a couple of pushes off the top and the speed begins to increase. I feel the wind on my face, but still haven’t made a turn. When things feel right, I roll my foot a little in the boot and feel the ski start to hook up. The next turn is money, the edge gripping in firm snow and I really start to lay it over, turn after turn until there’s no more mountain left.
