Yesterday I skied in over a foot of new snow at Powder Mountain using my 105 MM skies and had a great day on those skis; it snowed all day. This morning, after an additional five inches of snow and wind overnight, I decided to use my 85 MM skis in the new/cut up/ wind blown stuff. It was a great morning! I cranked up the speed a little more than usual (per Bob's Rules) and was able to slice through the new powder and the chowder with ease, making medium to short radius turns. After lunch, because there was still a fair amount of untracked powder and chowder, I decided to use my 105 MM skis again to see how they would do. I was surprised that they were nowhere near as maneuvreable (sp) as the 85 MM were. I felt as though I was being forced to try to twist my feet and skid the wider skis, while I was able to easily slice and blast thru on the narrower skis with much nicer turn shape and better speed control, the latter being a much more enjoyable experience.
My questions: What type of skis were the majority of the skiers using in the Crudology video? Does my experience as described above make any sense?
