Fatter skis = harder to spin?
so a skinnier ski like an invader is easier to spin than an anthem? thanks
I think the difference, if any, would be weight, but they're both park skis dude, the anthems aren't like a super BC tool.

Edge transfer will be a little delayed on a wider ski. Not necessarily harder, but more cumbersome.
With my most sincere regards,
fatter skis have more material, which typically weighs more, and thus, may be harder to spin. i wouldn't say it's much harder, but it's different. also, wind resistance does have something to do with spinning, but it's not noticible.
In the 5th grade i asked a girl out and then ran away as fast as i could. It was awesome.

anthems are so light and the swing weight is so minimal it isnt even a factor. they are lighter than many skinnier sandwich construction sksi I have felt.

it really does come down to the swing weight and where they are mounted. if you mount either at center, they are gonna be super sick to spin with
Yeah it just depends on the skis, honestly. Anthems are a park ski, and 10 mm more isnt a big deal. I had Bacons and tried to spin those and had a significantly harder time spinning because they were so heavy. After you get past about 95 mm, then you have to ratchet down the tricks from like a 5 to a 3, or a 7 to a 5, etc.
