Coping on heavy, wet fresh snow
This type of snow is the one I have the most difficulty in handling. Fortunately it's not too common.
Issue is that the skis sink into the snow and then getting them to change direction becomes challenging. The snow I have in mind is light enough that the skis won't stay long on top - any weight and then sink - and yet it's heavy enough that the ruts the ski makes don't readily allow the ski to rotate. Which makes short radius turns and quick direction changes problematic.
I'm using 88mm under foot and, yes, a wider ski would help but that's not always an option.
When the pow is light (e.g. Okanagan champagne :-)) no problems.
Hmmm... ok, will give that a try next time. Does make it hard to keep a smoothly progressing turn shape.
With some speed it's no problem... if you're going slow... then it's a different story.
