While the damping doesn't change the flex stiffness, the damping does change how rapidly it will flex, which will feel like a stiffness change. A friend on Z-90s skis fast, and he said that hitting a lump of snow at high speed was like hitting a brick. Instead of flexing and partly absorbing the lump, the skis were thrown by the lump. I agree about the smooth high speed run--like on bullet train rails.
