I can ski it anywhere at any speed. You just have to be a little ahead of the turn on groomers and make BIG turns. East coaster groomer types will definitely disagree but, I'm a powder hound. Groomers are for quick commutes to the powder or when the snow is bad.
I will not eat them with a goat
I will not eat them in a boat
I will not eat green eggs and ham
I will not eat them, Sam I am
Actually I skiied the B3 at Deer Valley on a Pow day back to back with my B5 metron!
The B5 skiied the Powder better than the B3 and you can only imagine what happaend on the groomed. with the B3.
The B3 don't ski groomed, come on! They were awful, terrible, repugnant, pitiful, slippery, dangerous, awkward, confidence killing, bad, on the packed!
How the hell do 2 people get such a different reaction from the same ski!
