My thoughts aside on the XXX, because I think its a bit soft in the shovel. Its a great ski, you have it, learn to use it. Whatever ski you use, learn its sweet spot.
Here is the deal, whatever ski you ski in the crud, STAY FORWARD!!! I cannot say this loud enough, crud requires you to force your ski through the snow, and staying forward will do this. Also, keeps you on your toes when you blast through a sof bump into the air. Secondly, speed is not a bad thing, keep with it, more speed = more force = smoother ride, but stay in control! Finially, forget about saving your skis. If you want to ski it well, and have fun, plan to spend some time with the p-tex at the end of the day/weekend. Aggressive skiing will take you where you want to go, how you want to get there.
Question: Why does every post have to do this?
Oh yea, Mt Bohemia has great snow! You should have a good time with a pair of XXX's there! BUt if you can ski the midwest, you can ski anything!!!
