I'm after advice, to end a debate with myself and finally get my new skis!
Background: male, 6' 0", 145-150lbs, athletic, advancing intermediate-aspiring expert. Been skiing about 5yrs. Most of my skiing in Utah, but a couple days per season EC.
I'm not a super aggressive skier, technically OK, bit of a cruiser. Have outgrown my beginner/ indermediate skis (K2 Stryker) and also need something fatter for UT.
I like all mountain mid-fat twins. Not too stiff cause I'm so light and not aggressive, but stiff enough to handle speed. I am just learning to do little jumps and love heading off trail to the trees or bowls. So looking for a fairly playful, poppy ski that will still ski well on groomers, but also some deeper stuff when I can find it. (will be OSQ)
I demo'd Rossi S3 and S6 this season at DV and enjoyed. S6 prob not practical for everyday ski though.
I get industry deals on a couple brands, and so based on my wants and the prices I can get, have basically narrowed it down to either Volkl Bridge or Liberty Morphic. Am not opposed to other suggestions, but I can get these 2 cheaper.
So vote away! Volkl Bridge or Liberty Morphic? I haven't been able to demo, would love to hear from anyone who has ridden both and can compare ( eg one feels much heavier/ stiffer/ livelier/ turns easier/ stable or whatever).
Looking forward to your thoughts!
