Are you saying you believe you can find "advanced" terrain more readily at the average CO resort vs Snowbird?
Are you saying you find Snowbird somehow disappointing?
Have you missed the express & often repeated admonitions that ratings are always relative within a single resort? If so, do you actually ski, or are you just pulling everyone's collective leg?
As far as the thread topic goes - it beats me why any recreational skier would use a sub-95 ski for anything other than specialty uses. I suspect that in two or three years, a "normal" ski (at least in the US) will be in the 95 to 110 zone. Maybe fatter in the west. So I guess the notion of "fat" is relative. And much depends on the design of the ski, so talking about just width is a bit of a red herring.
