I seen a set of these moutain ski,s they have only one carbide on the out side of the ski . would these be good for powder riding only. or would they be good on hardpack trails also.

Honestly neither - I have them on my '03 Summit and had to put shaper bars on them just to keep from pushing so much and they don't float up in pow good at all. The newer mtn pilots are "acceptable". The best mountain ski by far are Mods (and yes, I have tried powder pros and simmons too): http://www.modsskis.com/

Have FUN!

Hey r k!

I've never used the Mods in northern MI. I just have my two "classic" sleds over there in Charlevoix at my folk's place.

Mods skis are a tri-keel design. The center keel is not as deep and aggressive as C&A's or Powder Pros but when you turn them on edge the side keels grip and they will rail plenty well in everything but hardpack/ice. Never tried in those conditions but I would guess a good set of 7/16" bars with carbides (Bergstroms?) would work well in those conditions (the old yamaha exciter bars fit the mods skis). For powder and sidehilling there is no question in my mind that Mods are the best ski out there. I'd say go for them! And be aware that there is another outfit calling there skis m.o.d.s. which are completly different and total junk (sold out of Shadetree).

Have FUN!
