Eastern All Mountain skis for Spring

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi all, can you please recommend a rocker ski for eastern spring slush. Looking for a ski to handle all mountain and by that I mean mostly groomed and  bumps I really have no where to ski them off piste.

I'm 6', 200#  and very aggressive on groomers ice or not and getting better on bumps. So I would like a pair of rockered skis to extend my season trough the eastern spring slush and occasional ice.

I don't consider myself an expert but I I have a quiver of skis that are all "expert" rated so I am not so interested in a "ski to grow with" and I have a pair of Magfire 78's so I am really just looking for rockered recs.

Thank you

The Lord has no visible rocker but the Sollie marketing dept likes you to think it does.

The Lord has conventional camber but basically zero rocker. It is not a bad call at all for your needs except that it is not what you asked for (three times) which sounded sorta like.........."I solemnly swear that I want a rockered ski, a wholly rockered ski, and nothing but a rockered ski so help me god".
