I have read many of these forums but never posted a question. here goes.
I am expert level skier. Ski out west, mainly Whistler and interior BC, 6' 1" 175 lbs. I ski everything powder, steeps, trees, bumps, high speed cruising (No park though). A few years ago I bought Salomon X wing Fury's (177cm)and loved them. For one Ski and what I do I thought this was a great balance (still do). Last year I bought some Salomon Guns (188cm) and also loved them and use these on powder days.
Okay that's the background now the question. I now have multiple skis so will continue to have a more dedicated powder ski which means my everyday ski does not have to do it all.I ski alot of moguls and am interested in replacing the Furys with a ski that's more forgiving in bumps. It still needs to be versatile so cant be a bump specific ski. I can trade off float in powder for bump performance but it still needs to handle softer snow, crud and light powder up to say 6"-8" after that I can use the guns.
I have an opportunity to pick up some Salomon Tornados at a reasonable price and read some positive comments on these. What are your thoughts?
I don't have a thing for Salomon it just seems that when I am in the market for a set of skis these seem the best deal at the time.
