as far as I can tell, saying a ski id "fully symmetrical" is just a selling point for people looking to get into park. they assume they will be skiing switch half the time, so it makes sense for it to be the same forwards and backwards right?
generally forwards/backwards symmetry destroys any facsimile of a park skis ability to carve a turn because turn geometry isn't perfectly symmetrical. you lead with the front contact point of your skis and the rest of the ski follows.
If the ski is contacting at the front and rear at the same angle when you initiate a turn, the front contact point will start to hook; but the rear contact point will also contact the snow, making it nearly impossible for it to follow through the beginning of the turn.
