I was talking to a friend the other day about this trend of very fat skis for everyday skiing. He brought up something that I had not thought about. In heavy wet spring snow, a fat skis surface area could be a big disadvantage. Wet Heavy snow tends to stick and grab to the skis base. The more area the more likely your skis could get bogged down. Scott is not just some random guy. He at one time competed in some of the first extreme skiing competitions. He now is a ski instructor. One of the things he recommended was to get a structured base grind for spring skiing. of course a good wax job would also go along way in reducing all that drag. Anybody else have any thoughts on this?
