All-mountain skiing requires an infinite number of skill combinations. The more experiences you have, the more tools you can use when you need them. Your relationship with your equipment has to inspire trust. Like it or not, there are times when a traditional cambered tail can be your best friend and can rescue you from disaster. Sometimes you need the support of your third edge, and you need the security of knowing that when you lean on your skis’ tails, they’ll push back. Move your weight backward over a rockered tail, and when you ask it for support you’ll feel as if the rug was pulled out from under you.
