I've purchased a new pair of fat skis this year (Nordica Blower, 110mm waist) and just can't get them skiing comfortably on any kind of packed snow. Of course I didn't expect them to ski groomers well, but I'd like to at least get down that last run of the day without fear. They ski great in powder but are very hooky and squirely on any kind of packed snow. They came out of the plastic a little concave, so I had them flattened, which helped, but they still feel odd. A couple of people have suggested to me that I try a two degree base bevel. That seems like a lot. I'm wondering if anyone else has expierience using that much bevel on a big ski, and/or if I should just de-tune the heck out of them. Thanks. FWIW, my everyday ski is a 90mm waist, so I'm comfortable skiing on wider skis.
