I just got back from Vail/Beaver Creek and while i was out there rented a pair of Seth Pistols. THey were insane and now I really want a pair but I ski east coast. In my experience they were pretty good on the hard pack but i was mostly in back bowls and in trees where there was a good amount of powder. If anyone has a pair how would they be on hard pack and is it worth buying them (I can probably get them 1/2 off)??
