What is the thinking on this? Fat waisted ski (120mm +) with a wide tip (150mm +) and the tail is barely wider than the waist (+6mm). Is this to make it easier to get the ski to plane, as in tip up with the tail pushed down into the snow or to wheelie, as in drive the tail down hard for slowing or a sharp turn? Is it so you can push the tail out and through the snow in the turn? How does a fat ski with a more conventional side cut (tail = +20mm ish) ski differently?
