I took the B3 in 168 out last week for a day at the Canyons and was truly impressed. Conditions were mostly chop and crud, but I found some untracked powder in the trees. These things eat crud for breakfast. I have never felt so confident in these conditions before. Turn initiation was effortless, decent float in powder too and when the runs opened out into groomers the carving and edge hold were excellent for a ski this wide. Caveat is that I'm not a particularly fast skier, and I assume that at speed a ski this soft would not tend to chatter a lot. Anyway, It seems like an excellent ski for mixed conditions. I hope at some point to compare the Legend 8000 or Karma, so comments from anyone who has experience with these skis as well are appreciated.
