I am looking for a great all mountain ski that can handle both bumps, ice and high speeds...I (think) I have narrowed the field down to this year's K2 Lotta Luv and the Stockli Stormrider LXL. I race Masters and have been looking for advice on a solid non-race ski that can go almost anywhere on the mountain. Has anyone tested/demoed both skis? Any and all help is much appreciated!!
Dilemma: 2011 K2 Lotta Luv or Stockli Stormrider LXL??

Looking up the specs on the XXL and the LXL, one observes the similarity of dimensions. I'm thinking they are the same ski, but Stockli may have constructed the LXL a little softer. Could just be a topsheet switch, like Shogun/Geisha or a softer version of the same construction like Mantra/Aura. The K2 is truly a soft ski. So the difference is major. Given your strength and skills, you have to try the Stockli. Stockli quality is iconic.
