I must admit that two performance aspects of fat ski's pull me to them on any snow day (Well three if you count the gaper factor "boy those are some wide skis!"
First, even thin snow skis "bottom less", that is, when making my way through the trees with less than a foot of fresh, I don't need to be concerned (so much) about the rock or snag just a few inches below the surface. The fun factor goes WAY up if i need to be less concerned about the big hang up.
Second, Just "walking around" pulling ropes or moving across flat areas, the wide skis make a big difference. At the end of the day, the "spent factor" can be considerably less.
Oh oh, I've used up the two reasons, and there are still lots more. Did I mention the crud busting delight of the fatties?.... ... and the ... and the
You get it, It's all about having fun.
And then on the real snow day yesterday, I pulled the RC4's. What was I thinking??
'Sure had fun! And I hope you do too!.
Heck, I could have been snow boarding ;-(
