I'll agree that the Squad isn't designed to excel in pow. Its a big mountain ski, with means ice, crust, general gnar just as often as pow.
unless you have the disposable income to have a set of skis that mostly...sit.
This is Jer speaking you are correct. Not all fat skis are powder skis. The blue pigs who think so need to get a clew. If a ski is too stiff you can always shoot it ten times with a 9mm semi-auto using Super-X ammo.
From TGR's Recommended Skis list:
9 - titan pro / Squad / supa stiff bros (270)
8 - LP / Monster / explosiv / dp #3 / capital stiffs (260)
7 - big daddy / stockli dp (250)
6 - ANT / extra stiff kingswood / stiff bros
5 - mantra / ak swallowtail / dp #2 (240)
4 - gotama / soft bros / reg. kingswood (230)
3 - yellow ak rockets / sugar daddy ?
2 - PR / lawnchair (200 or less)
1 - sanouk/made'n
0 - green ak rockets
This ski skis the mashed potatoes and less than swell snow better than anything I have tried. In the NW we get alot of wet snow that gets recovered or hardened and needs to be skied . Powder you can ski with anything. A fat ,stiff ski , works fine for the few epic dumps we found this year in my neck of the woods. A specific powder ski would be a lot softer but this is a good tool for where I ski the most especially now
The point of my post is I wouldn't recommend this ski to very many people but it works for my uses.
