Short turns on fattish skis.It has been some time since this thread was active, and there have been some changes in the gear since then.
The question was also inspired by the Ski mag instructional articles which, in 3 paragraphs can't quite tell the whole story.
How likely is it that fatter, softer powder skis (and to a lesser degree midfat AMEs) will mask or hide a propensity for that very downstem at the end of a turn?
- the increased girth and therefor slower transitions to uphill edge slowing the 'rebound'
- altered expectations of edge engagement altering the 'pushout' habit
- softer ski tails again slowing 'rebound' because of a less direct platform?
