What should I demo when in Utah?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I am a New England skier who likes to carve groomers on my Atomic SX.  This March I am going out west for the first time in a while.  Rather than racing down ice, I am excited to float on some powder through the glades. 

 

Any suggestions for demos?

 

What is the hottest ski this year?

 

I am looking for something that can handle the feet of snow i am hoping for but also allows me to open it up. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

March could be spring corn or fresh powder.  you'll just have to decide when you get here and see what the conditions are on that particular day you demo.

Powder- Rossi S3

Groomers- Blizzard G-Power (or if you like a wider ski, the M-Power)

Mix- Maybe Mantra or Kendo, Kastle FX84 or MX88 also depending on conditions.

Depends on where you will be staying. There are many good shops for demo skis. Are you staying in Salt Lake or Park City? In Park City, best demo shops are Christy Sports and Cole Sports. Wide selection available and they should have any ski you need for any condition. I would suggest going into the shops and asking for recommendations based on the conditions at the time. The people at the shop are very good at assessing your ability, ski preferences, and conditions. Just be honest with them about what type of skier you are and what you like to do. Good luck and have fun.

If you want to demo some quality powder boards (and why wouldn't you), go with these guys:

If you rent form anywhere not "on the hill" you will have taken more effort than I would.
