I ski in Colorado and can only get up about 20 times/season (I know, it sucks baaad). Therefore a one-ski quiver makes sense for me. I've been skiing some watea 94's and love them. However, I've been attracted to what I've seen said about the bonafide/cochise.
Is there anyone who has skied the fishers and the blizzards and can compare??
The watea is so fun in the soft snow and gives me plenty of float in 12" to knee/thigh-deep (I don't mind being a little under the snow, not floating at the top) The only times the watea has left me wanting more is if I'm not skiing a powder day and there's some hard pack to navigate and also, there are times where I'm wanting a bigger mountain/wider ski trying to scrub speed or cut through crud on a steep bowl.
Sounds like the Bonafide might be my answer but what about the cochise?
