    So far, I have only had the Volkls (M102 and K108) out in those conditions. Both a fine, but can be a little sluggish at slower speeds in that kind of snow. The tails break loose pretty easy...

    If I can run back to my truck and swap skis at lunch, sure. Quivers are fun. Mine is ridiculous. Itís more like a demo fleet right now.

    2020-21 Cochise 106

    Not as smeary and loose as the first version. Still a big mountain crusher (as you likely know) but more like a comp ski. The original was a charger with a playful and almost forgiving side. When...
