I'm a level 8, aggressive, heavy (235) skier (60+ days a year). I'm looking for a ski specifically for skiing on Eastern "crud". Would not be my everyday ski. About 6-8 times a year we get 4-10" of "powder" that gets very quickly skied off. I'd love a backup ski for just such days. My two everyday skis are a Fischer SC Pro (170), and a Rossignol Strato 80ti (175). The Rossi works better than the Fischer on such days-but is still not ideal. Thanks for your help.
Best Eastern "Crud" ski?

P4 is a nice soft snow ski, with easy going persona but not really suited for eastern skiing I think. Not the best at firm crud. Not much of a carver on real hard pack, fairly soft flexing esp in the tail for a big guy, a bit heavy to throw around. I think more suited for western daily driver than east esp in 191. The 181 would work better back east esp with tight trees but still more of a going west ski than crud specific.
I would think that an 85mm midfat would be fine in 4-10" of firm crud. e.g. nordica jetfuel, sultan, head monster, etc...
