These threads crack me up. I mean, I could post a thread about the relative merits of breaking different kinds of bottles on my head. And the point would be?
To each their own. And to each region their own issues. I'm not interested in skiing true blue ice on any ski. Last season I never skied on anything under 105. And that was great for better than 9 out of 10 ski days. The very few times I wished for a narrower ski, my real mistake was being out in the first place
This season I doubt I'll even get on anything as skinny as 105. Which will hold me in fine stead for anything other than true ice - at least for my definition of fun skiing. And yeah, there may be a day or two when I go sliding around... oh well...
If you enjoy true glaze ice, you can have my spot on the hill on those days.
A 66mm GS/ Sl/ Carver makes it suck a little less, but it is what it is !
You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig.
