I miss the faceshots only. Wider skis preform way better but, one day a few years back, I skied down a foot of powder on my head mojo 90's next to a friend how was on Kiro's. We got down to the bottom, and I was completely caked in snow. Faceshots the whole way down. My friends had hardly a spec on him from floating down the whole way while I was basically trenching. I miss that a bit. I feel it takes a little deeper snow to get more faceshots now on wider skis.
OP, you'll notice that Pollard has really scaled back his ideal pow ski from the earlier width of the EP Pro's to the Opus. We're not going towards two snowboards.
Wait, so I should be buying skis based on what you think is cool or necessary rather than what feels the most orgasmic underfoot and blasting though pow?
Right. I'll get on that.
