I don't think you're looking for something quite this fat, but I've found my comikazis to be pretty easy to ski, as long as the snow is soft. The rockered tip makes them very easy to manage in tight trees, even though they're fairly stiff, I just don't notice it at slow speeds. In powder, if the tip is already bent up, you barely need to flex the ski at all past that.
