I used (a slightly older version of the) Anaconda 18 every ski day last season, 70 days later it looked almost new. In resort I'd pack shovel, probe, food and water. I did a lot of tree skiing and never noticed it, it's really unobtrusive. I was able to attach skies through the compression straps in an A-frame arrangement to hike lines. It did become completely full when I added back country gear for day tours but it was still comfortable; I ended up hang insulation layers on the arm straps when skinning. I've used the pack for hiking in the summer, I'm very pleased with its low profile and surprised at how well the minimalist waist strap works. In short, great build quality and comfortable, perfect if you like to pack light. (The only thing I'd add would be a cross pack ski attachment system, but I appreciate that that's a bit niche.)
