i would say powder pro's but they are expensive. someone did a test compared to c&a and his stock skis on his arctic cat. he tested ice, powder, and hard pack trail. overall the powder pro's were best in powder and good on the trail. i can't find the link but i will post it if i do.

I think the 8 inchers are the way to go. have heard that the 10 inchers seem to track a bit more on the trails. and the 8 inchers are pretty heavy cant imagine what the 10's are.

Powder Pro's are by far our best seller and I would say the most saught after ski out there whether it be the mountains or SnoX. But, the Slydog ski is making it's mark and I really think they are going to be a big deal.

I have a newer set of skiis on my sled...don't know what they are though because I didn't put them on, all I can say is that they're like 6 in wide atleast and apparently float awsome. I'll find out what they are and post it by this weekend (hopefully). Isn't it harder to carve with wider skiis?

How wide are the regular Simmons skis? I have been looking at them for the past couple of months, them or the first generation Pol Sidehillers.

I put a set of c&a's on my pro x and got to ride it aroound the yard up north. I really like how it felt on slow speeds. It turned reall well on unfrozen ground also.

You might want to make sure that your sleds will fit on the trailer with them on.
They are just bound to get in the way if you run with a standard 2 place trailer.
I wonder about that myself. My xc'S with the stock plastic barely fit on the trailer. Wouldnt be a big deal if it wasnt for the cap on it.
