ButteredToast.Always get gassed so fast while skiing powder. I think it's because I've never really skied a pair of super fat powder sticks and I have to lean back a bunch.
Got a pair of 184 Deathwishes this year though! Excited to give them a go in some deep stuff when I go out to Utah later this year
AbiHThose are dope
ButteredToast.Thanks! I love em. 112 underfoot and 25m turning radius. They like to go fast as hell.
TubeBroI have a set of the 190's. They feel like the edges are super detuned, even though they aren't. Do you get that sensation or nah?
Also, if you think those feel like they like to go fast, you should try the Bibbys. They make the Deathwishes feel like kids toys.

CraigskisVery first day of ever skiing Whistler saw virgin powder behind the Harmony chairlift in Whistler, looked at the mountain layout on the map, and thought how bad can it be? (Skiing fallline under harmony chair takes you pretty far out of resort boundaries into a valley known as singings pass), I'd made the foregone conclusion that there must be a valley trail at the bottom *lucky guess) After getting a few minutes of good pow turns, it plateaued, and I tried trending back towards the resort on skiers 45 angle towards the boundary, after about 2 hours of trekking through waist deep powder I found the fall line again, and got sucked down into some avy shoot fingers which turned about to be a stellar run. No beacon, nobody knew where I was, darkness late afternoon in January setting in) I came out the shoot at the bottom, and followed the valley trail back to the resort.
I showed up at my parents hotel around 6pm I was 18. Good times, learned a few things in the process. Young & Dumb. Over the years I'd revisit different fingers. The first day I skied them they were pretty loaded, and I got away with it.
