Just finished an epic three day assault on numerous unopened ski trails in North Central Vermont after receiving 30+ inches of super low density snow last weekend. Trailbreaking was absurdly difficult for many skiers, even w/ super fat skis and skins, but splitboard and tractor skins floated best by far. Got nominated to break trail most of the time. Nonetheless, have toured w/ these in Utah, Alaska and much of New England, and work extremely well in powder and variable conditions. New riveted tip clip much better than old stitching and fabric. Adding a tail clip would be nice, but no huge problem. Being 110mm wide, they are wicked sticky but seem to be more manageable the more you use them. Carry some extra glue and get out there.
