Well, I ran into some ice patches. The TD didn't wash out, but it definitely struggled to hold its edge on the patches in a steep run. Going full speed and trying to edge on ice, I got the dreaded leg rocking scraping noises.
I've been interested in this board the last couple years, so I'm wondering what normally happens for you when you hit an unexpected ice patch? Also what board/s do you consider to hold an edge well on ice?
I took it into some deep stuff. I purposely rode it into the side of one of the runs which had waist deep snow. Literally speaking, the TD disappeared through knee deep and rode out. I ended up coming out with a mound of snow on my board, but nothing a little jump didn't fix.
Typically that's always on the side of any blue/green run on the best coast
