nice clarification, Jim.
I have a visual for ya'll that goes with it: First scene of MSP's Push, the skiers up front at KT on a storm morning, skating and poling hard exiting the chair to keep in the front across the flats on the way to their top priority line. This is totally the vibe on a good day there. For me to keep up in this rush for first tracks, I have to have a ski with a long enough edge to skate and track really fast. Otherwise, every epic day, I get sent back about 10 or 20 skiers cause I can't make the dash. I'm not about to let that happen, it's part of my priorities. Thus, for now, the Huge = fast to get there, shreads when you are there.
