JayT: But did you enjoy it? I wasn't up the last few days, but I've always found that kind of powder to be difficult to enjoy. Sure, I can ski it, but I'm not having a lot of fun. Part of it is I'm a big guy (200lbs) and I don't truly have skis big enough to stay on top of it (187cm long, 106cm wide is my biggest ski). When it comes to powder it just seems like more fun to be in it than on it.
Bottom line is this snow isn't really true powder, too much wind and weird temps for it to be true powder. It is strange skiing sometimes no doubt, but a 187x106 ski should do just fine in it. Actually, when it is this type of snow, I go down in width.
