This question may be better placed in the tuning section, but I really don't know. If a mod wishes to move it, go ahead.
I bought a pair of Ski Logic's Ullr's Chariots (186 or so) at a going-out-of-business sale in the late summer of 2014. I finally took them out for a spin on Tuesday. The conditions were well groomed on piste, and moderate soft-to medium crud off piste. The sun was out and temperatures were right around or a smidge above freezing. The skis blew my mind in the crud and skied well on the groomers until I got near the very bottom of the hill. The groomed snow here had been pounded down to near (but not there yet) ice and had a small amount of loose stuff on top. I noticed that all skiers from advanced to beginners were skiing regularly with no more problems than usual. I, however, was having HUGE troubles here.
The skis were grabbing and letting go at different places along the edge, making it nearly impossible to retain any control. I couldn't even snow plow. Each ski wiggled and bucked continuously. I tried going to a pure carve, but there were too many people around to really get into it and it didn't seem to be helping much, anyway. I also tried to skid my turns with very light, feathered edge control, but that didn't work much either, though it worked better than the other options.
This seemed to happen only on this one type of snow, everything else made me feel like a hero.
These skis have traditional camber.
To compare, I went up the next day and skied my old, tried and true Elan 888s in very similar conditions. I could just feel the grabby snow, but it wasn't really an issue, I felt in good control.
Any ideas about how to address this problem?
