I've got my CS at Loveland right now riding some good deep stuff! IMO you need 12"+ to break it out. That doean't mean 12" on the report. If you know your mountain, a 5" storm with the right wind can make a great pow day on certain aspects.
The CS handles groomers decently. It's a pow stick not a groomer cruiser. It sucks ass on hardpack, but if you're hitting hardpack on a pow stick you're doing it wrong.
