SO a few seasons ago, maybe even 2, I remember when most skis could be used all over the mountain, with the exception of deep snow for the most part. (sidenote: Im a firm believer that you can ride any ski anywhere, but totally understand that a fat ski makes a difference, so dont get too worked up.) So an all mountain ski a few seasons ago had a waist of about 83 - 87 mm's. TOPS!!! and everyone was super happy with that. NOOOOW when you see posts about all mountain skis; which lets be honest, a very small few of you will ever leave a roped area ever! people are saying you cant ride the whole hill on an average sized park ski wich a few seasons ago was about 78mm's, which is now about avg of 85 mm's. Whats that all about? so my real question here is... has everyone just gotten lazy or can no one actually ski anymore orrrrrrrr has ski technology (and i use the term lightly) made it too easy? IM just wondering because I see alot of posts on here about this, and its kind of starting to make me wonder if I shouldnt just snowboard and avoid the whole question all together.
