Now I just need to decide what skis to take, would you guys say it’s powder ski worthy?

Not to scare you but bring your best edges. The steeps have a nice (if that's possible} ice layer underneath but still skied great. Personally it did not bother me one bit & it makes for a super solid base. Moreso than rocks. Really fun technical skiing.

Right where I want to be
So someone says "bring your best edges as there is a ice base on the steeps" and someone replies "I'll bring my 100's but I am afraid because they are not rockered"

Hmmm...

Whatever skis you like best for a little slide into powder pockets. I would think there's no need for rocker but wtf do I know.

I was more concerned about the loose snow between those patches of ice and or potential woods shenanigans.

There will be bumps, we are purposely going to start only grooming half trails and letting the other side bump up for spring shenanigans. Pack accordingly!

I heard it'll be a wildlife sanctuary. Like when a ship sinks & becomes a reef.

Awesome on the 1/2 & 1/2 DW. Love those days...

I wish more places did this, at least on a few trails.

It allows differing levels of skiers in the same group/family better enjoy a run together.

Talisman today was groomed to perfection skiers left, chopped powder shots (soon to be moguls) skiers right. Very nice. In fact there were a lot of very nice groomers, some nice lose/chopped packed powder on some east side trails, while the steeeper pitches had a challenging and technical combo of powder topped bumps with some firm to icy troughs. Nothing that can’t be handled, and it builds character too.
