Local hill got 3-4 inches Friday night on top of 3-4 on Wednesday night. We were packing up yesterday afternoon after a great day of skiing when I saw a ski patroller walking through with some huge powder skis. Looked to be 100+ and reverse camber. I asked him how they worked out. He replied that they were great in the trees way over there. I assumed he was talking about the trees way out of bounds where the snow is several feet deep but very consolidated with plenty of new snow and drifting. 6-8 on top of very old snow. Trees are fairly tight but the small saplings poking up can make turning impossible for short sections before it opens up again.
Is this type of ski any good for these conditions? In how little snow can you still have fun with type of ski?
