Loving my Fat TwinsI'm not into the back country thing, but definitely a fan of the Big Trouble. I have the black and lime green model (2006?) in 176 cm. When I first got them, I assumed, like a lot of skiers, that the 92 mm waist would slow down the handling. To test this assumption, I tried imitating what other skiers were doing on the mountain. I skied behind one guy cranking out quick short radius turns down the fall line. Matched him turn for turn. Then I fell in behind another skier carving big, fast turns on the groomed. Kept up with him for a while until my 58-year-old knees begged me to stop. Things are warming up now, so I'm looking forward to finding out how the BT's perform in the slush. A great all-round ski, and it looks good enough to mount on the living room wall in the off-season (if my wife allows it, of course).
