Yeah, I could see how the MX78's would be a bit of work in heavy wet snow.  Yikes.  No wonder you dragged her into the demo shop for a wide pair.  Good move, and enlightenment seems to have followed  8)

You know, when Whiteface got 36 inches of that heavy wet stuff a couple of years ago, Terryl skied her Dynastars in that for 6 hours per day for three days, and still had gas in the, that is....she still had energy to burn.  Those skis were gold in those conditions.

But deep western powder is another matter entirely, and we're just not that experienced in that, hence the reason for my posts here.  Judging by the responses, it seems like the best thing for her to do is just dive in to a big bowl full of the fluffy stuff and try 'em (will carry a snorkel just in case  :D ), and then go to the demo shop and grab a wider pair and see how they feel too.  Cross fingers for another dump in Jackson or Louise so she can really do a proper test.
