Wide skis

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Why are wide skis (90+) so squirrelly on pack/groom but stable in crud/powder? I can stabilize the ski by sitting back but I really don't want to do that----What gives?

One of the adjustments going from groomed to powder is to use less edge in powder. It sounds like you've got the opposite problem: riding the skis too flat on the groomers. Try tipping them more into edge. One of the knocks against wide skis vs narrow skis on the groomers is that wide skis take a little bit longer to go from edge to edge. If you're compensating for that little difference by helping the skis turn, then they will get squirrelly.
