- Had the same problem
I have a 2012 pair of these skis and have the same problem. They're way too stiff and have way too much camber. Makes the great for touring on the flats, but impossible to turn in soft snow. Even with Fritschi's and Scarpa Denali's.
Hopefully the new version with less camber, softer flex and slightly rockered tip will ski a lot better.
I have ridden a wide variety of skis built for backcountry use, and many claim to turn well on the downhills. The Karhu 10th mountain skis (the ski that was the equivalent of the bc 110) were a beautiful compromise between touring and turning. They were soft enough to engage the full ski when turning, but still had great glide on the flats.
The BC 110 has great glide on the flats, but is too stiff to allow the full ski to engage in turns. Likewise, it tends to submarine in deep snow. I am 170 lbs. and bought the 178cm BC 110 skis hoping to use them for touring and a little bit of turning...
My wife has the Karhu 10th Mountains, and we are equally skilled skiers. Watching her turn on her skis is a beautiful thing, watching me try to wrestle with the too stiff camber of the BC110's it is apparent that rossignol missed the bus on creating a well balances ski.
If turning isn't your goal, the BC 110's are great.
If you are hunting for the perfect ski for powder hounding those places with a long flat approach... go with something softer.
