I just don't get it. Unless you ski at an area that recieves 250 inches a snow a year, I'm lost understanding the merits of skiing a 80 plus inch waisted ski. Call me a dinosaur but I think a race type carver ski delivers more enjoyment when skiing snow starved, mand made base ski areas. I love fresh snow as much as the next guy , but its the exception rarely the rule for me. I don't even ski my XP's much anymore becaue of the general hardpack conditions. I have a pair of Volant FB's that I think have 5 days on them.
I often pray to win the lottery, then I buy a ticket.
I pray for snow, so I buy a fat ski.
Might make more sense to buy a narrow, hard snow ski. But I want to ski powder - so something fatter.
Looking at the Bridge, Mantra and also the Mythic Ryder. I wonder if the performance of the Mythic Ryder will be enough coming off the Top Fuel as my regular ski. I understand it to be soft, which would be good in the woods. That could also be dull other wise.
