Im looking for a pair of ski's that ride the back-woods, and bumps with ease, but are also able to cruise on the groomers. I have been snowboarding for about 10 years now and just started transition back to ski's this past winter, splitting the winter 50-50. After Demo-ing the K2 Apache 177s, Salomon Lords 177 and Rossignol s3 177-8? I cannot figure out which would be the best ski. I do enjoy freestyle, spend a lot of time on the East Coast but also head out west 1-2 times per year.
Does anyone have either one of these ski's who could throw me a little more information than what I got from the one day I spent on each ski. So far I'd have to say im leaning toward the Salomon n Rossignols over the Apaches.
