Here's a video I did today with my FT62's and Alaska bc.

I was a bit all over the place, got kicked around by the hard base hidden under the 5 or 6 inches of snow we got last night.
Blue wax did a great job, climbing was a breeze.

Almost lost an arm here at the end, pole got stuck in a branch.

Thank you for taking the time to post that video man! I loved it! I was in the exact same conditions and terrain yesterday!
BTW- really sucky about your E99s Easy-Skin insert breaking out.
I'm afraid it does not surprise me...
The Easy-Skin design offers superb performance but it is clearly not designed for durability...
I am actually surprised we have not had posts from skis breaking at that point...
The FT62 is so much fun! What an amazing ski for downhill skiing with XC boots!!!!!
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Howdy partner! We live and learn don’t we? Do yourself a favour and take your hands out of your pole loops on the descent!
