Looking for a good all mountain ski

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

This summer i have to save up for a new pair of skis. I ride all over the mountain. I spend most of the time in trees, bumps, and groomers. I go out west for about 2 weeks every year and thats where i maybe get a couple powder days. Every once in awhile i go into the park too. Not very often though. I love finding powder stashes, drops, and natural jumps. (dont really trick them, just like airtime). I'm currently looking at Volkl Kendos. Not sure about the flex for bumps and trees. Im a light skier. 140 lbs.

 

Main point. Looking for skis that can handle bumps, trees, and airtime...

If you don't have boots that were fitted to your feet by someone who knows what they're doing, like a boot fitter, don't waste your money on skis, buy boots that fit first.  Properly fitting boots will make any ski respond better, even rentals.

Boots first, then skis.  But after you get some good boots I'd check out Volkl Kendo, Blizzard 8.1, Kastle MX88, Fischer Watea 84, and maybe a Line Prophet 90

Volkl Bridge, *not* Kendo for what you are describing IMO.

If you can go to $900 get the Blizzard 8.1, if not Fischer Watea 84 or Line Prophet 90.
