Replying to The all mountain/park perfect width
What do you think is the perfect width for an all mountain cruise/park ski, for maximum fun ?
I have the impression that skis are wider each year. And that more and more people like wider skis as their all mountain/park skis. It may be me but it seems that the "standard" of all mountain / park skiing has rather become around 104/106mm (prodigy 3.0, revolt 104 , fly two 105, atomic bent 100 ...) than 90/95mm. When I look at some pros, I really have this feeling. So it leaves me wondering, isn't 100+ not too much for the park or when the snow is a bit hard in the early season ? I've always skied skis around 95mm, but considered going a bit wider.
Does this mark the end of fatty boys for big powder, to be replace by a one quiver ski, to rule them all ? What are your thought ?
