From what I gather, last year's mx98 was the better ski for those purposes. Sadly, I didn't get my hands on a pair while I had the chance. And I have better fatties for when things are deep.
I have mx78s, so no point getting the 88 which is the same ski, just a bit wider.
And more & more I'm getting the sense that the Fx94 is a more direct replacement for last year's mx98 than is the current mx98
