Happy late October all.
As my visions of early turns in the east start fade, I am thinking about my quiver.
Currently, my daily driver has been the 2008 Mantra. I like it on about 70% of the days I ski. It has been fairly good at holding edge on firm days and a lot of fun in the spring.
Unfortunately, the other 30% is just not a "blast".
First, a little info:
I am 33, 5'8, 225. Ski in the east (mostly Sugarloaf/ Saddleback/ Wildcat)
Looking for something softer, more nimble in tight spots (i.e. the woods), with much better float. Skier weight is clearly an issue but, I am working on it.
Some skis I have considered:
Volkl Bridge - someone told me it seems silly to have 2 pair in the 90's category.
Rossi S3 - see above.
There is so much out there I feel overwhelmed. Any thoughts are appreciated.
