Skied pow with mine yesterday and they rock the fluff!! Anything 4 inches or more there great!! Deeper the better. They dont like chop to much though. The tips will rise up and buck ya a bit in the chop. So first tracks and were you can find less tracked powder awsome. Skied the Opus the other day. I would try and find those over the EP pro. They ski pow the same but stiffer tip for crud later in the day.
