Its common knowledge that an aggressive base structure is great for spring skiing as it helps to reduce the suction between the ski and wet snow by channeling more water. What's interesting is that this same structure can make a ski very difficult to ski in light dry snow. Does anyone know the actual physics at work that cause the aggressively structured base to be nearly unskiable when its light and dry?
