OK, here's the deal. Your carving a big arc on high angle chalk and the ski edge flutters, my term, alternately bites and chatters, diminishing the glory of the perfect carve. I figured I was edging harder than the ski could strip speed on the steep pitch and eased off , letting things drift down the fall line a bit more. Checking the gear later, I noticed that the boot soles where they interface with the bindings were quite rounded due to the hiking on scree that we do a lot at Squaw. Also, I have Salomon 810ti bindings, designed for more moderate waist dimensions some years ago. So where is the chatter-flutter coming from. Are the new wide engineered bindings, ie: Jester and others, an important component with skis 95 to 100 under foot? grind the boot soles? new boots, ouch? don't turn, dude!
