Trekchick & everyone who recommended the Santa Anas- Em got them out in late December, when it was pretty safe from rocks, and absolutely loves them. She nailed the epic powder day at Alta on Christmas Day and was ecstatic on how they skied powder.... I had wondered about whether to recommend the LaNinas for the extra width, but at about 120#s 100mm underfoot was fine for Em and there is plenty of float. The question was how about groomers?Today was a very cold, deserted blue sky day at Alta and we zoomed corduroy. Em clocked in at 50.2 mph on the 169 Santa Anas in tele gear! So, happy lady. Quote: "I just love to lay them over!" Thanks again all.
And here's a shot of Superior. Gorgeous day. There was even a bit of powder available for a hike.
