skied the Volkl Platinum last season and was very impressed with the ski. Thinking about adding a front-side GS type cruiser to the quiver. Looking for something that will let me ski a relaxed blue cruiser, but won't get wimpy or panic if I get going over 30 mph. The Platinum fits the bill nicely. Any other suggestions of skis that are similar? Also, although there seems to be some disagreement about this in the other thread about the Platinum, it seems that the P50 Platinum is a different sidecut than last year's P40 (63mm waist vs 65mm). It's a pity when someone reviews a model that replaces or carries on a model from the previous season that they don't make some specific comparisons as to what changed and how the ski is different.
