Expand the quiver? No way! She has 3 pairs already.  If one comes in, another goes out.  We're running out of space in our basement for all this gear  :o

Gary, that is true about her skiing style, but her technique in soft snow if much more finesse and less energy intensive than on groomers.  That's how it should be, right? So she was able to ski 3 long days at Whiteface in 36 inches of heavy stuff, and still go skating on the oval at night.  Me too, for that matter, and I was on my Mythics.  To be clear, the snow was so heavy and dense, that float was just not an issue for a mid-80 mm ski.  Others on narrow skis were struggling, however.
