What ski to demo in Jackson.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I'l be in Jackson hole this weekend, this Thursday through monday. I'm demoing skis from Jackson Hole Sports in Teton

 

Village and I can't decide what skis to demo. I'm 5'10 150 lbs, and ski a little behind center mount.

 

Conditions: 2-4 inches of snow each day I'm there.

Im torn between 4 skis.

-The 183 Atomic Bent Chetlers.

-The 182 Shogun Shogun.

-182 Salomon Czars 

-179 Kung Fujas.

 

Please leave any suggestions,

Feel like the Bents might be overkill in 2-4 of new snow at 120+ in the waist.  

 

How about one day on each of the others?

The Shogun is a very popular all-around ski here.

I work in JH Sports. 

 

Are you a strong skier?  Will you be skiing off trail?

 

For the current conditions, I would recommend:

 

K2 Side Stash- 111 underfoot (fat early rise ski, square tail, JH to the core)

Atomic Blog- 110 underfoot (traditional Austrian carver, wearing the cloak of tip and tail rocker)

Fischer Watea 101 (wood soul charger, 101 is the magic number)

 

As the Sage said, the Shogun is an excellent ski.  So excellent that many have been skied hard.  Because of the deeper rocker, the Czar will ski well

I hope you had a great time in JH.  I was there in late Feb and it was epic!  I finally checked Corbet's off the bucket list!
