Good enough for Hoji, good enough for me
Ok, these things are great in West Coast powder, but that was expected, and they did not disappoint… what surprised me was how well they work on hard pack, definitely an order of magnitude better than any other wider back country ski I own… at the end of the day I am super happy with the Hoji, it feels like an extension of me and I look forward to every time I ski them. The forelock is genius and works better than any other tail connection I have used.
