I'm hoping to get a good summer deal on some skis and was wondering if anyone on the board could give me some advice.
I'm trying to decide between fat skis and big mountain skis. I'm moving back to Ann Arbor in 2 weeks so I will be skiing in Michigan some, but really hope to hit the Rockies at least once or twice a year.
If I'm living in Michigan, I think the easy answer is that I should go with big mountain skis so I can easily handle a wider variety of terrain, but I do love riding deep powder whenever I can get it. Is there really a noticeable difference between the two types? Are fat skis really much tougher on groomers than big mountains?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
