wide / powder boards that work on hardpack - Page 2

post #31 of 43
Don't overthink this. Given what you've said, just get the bigger GPOs...
 
The wood veneer limited edition looks pretty sick to me. The last thing I need is another pair of Praxis skis - but I'm damn tempted. Keith claims he can do interesting structural things with the veneer vs std nylon. And that the veneers are super tough.

 

 

Here's a video of my spouse enjoying her GPOs.... Pity there is no video from the very upper part of the run as it was legit powder that transitioned to a corn type texture near the pickup zone.

Volkl 100Eight.  Absolutely must be considered.  Amazing tools.  Surgical, playful, unwavering.  Skied 'em in pow, skied on corduroy.  Yum.

Icelantic Keepers (117 waist and camber).  Icelantic discontinued them this year, but for the last 5 years they have remained unchanged except for the topsheets, so any you find will be the same ski.  Surprisingly playful for a competent crud bulldozer.  Still some cheap deals on the net.
