Wide and Wonderful: Frontside Porkers

posted: 03/03/2004

(85-94 mm waists)
They prefer to think of themselves not as fat, but merely full-figured. Rubenesque. Use them to plunder the frontside run after run on those frantic powder mornings. Your skinny-skied rivals will wallow in your tracks. The group includes a new fatty from Rossignol (the B3), a women-specific offering from K2 (T:Nine Phat Luv), a pricey handmade creation from Dynastar (Super Nobis) and one of the originals (Volant Chubb). Go with a short length for ripping tight Eastern trees. (And remember: The flotation makes mellow woods that aren't steep enough for skinny skis a whole lot of high-speed fun, even days after the dump.) In the West, go long.
