Loved the Watea 84 - what else should I try though?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Some background.  I was skiing Mammoth this weekend, mainly packed down powder that had been skied out with small moguls forming.  I ski Volkl Mantra 177's, and am 5'10", 170 wet.  Skiing the Mantras was not fun - they were beating the snot out of me, I could not swing them around the moguls and started to think I was the world's worst skier.  I had previously really liked the skis in powder and on groomers.  So, I demoed a pair of Watea 84s in 176 - what a difference.  I felt like I could ski again, was able to turn and ski the bumps with competence.  So much fun.  I would definitely buy this ski but before I do, I want to know what else I should consider in the same league.  Thank you for your input - I am new to this forum and look forward to reading and contributing.
