Ideas for a do everything ski!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I know there are about 1,000 threads on this topic and trust me I have read just about all of them. I am 5"11 and 170 lbs. I live on the east coast and will most likely be an ice junky for the rest of skiing days. I am 23 years old have planned my first trip to Utah this winter. So stoked to ride the freshest pow!

 

I have skied just about every mountain on the coast and am a very aggressive skier. My runs usually consist of hitting the highest peak and finishing the run in the park. Ideally I would like a ski that I could use both here and out there. However, my main objective is to have a sick time out west. I am not sure if I should go fat or something around a 90 underfoot.  Being that i have never had the

privilege of hitting some pow I dont have a first hand accound on the trade offs between skis.

 

I am looking at the mantra, line prophet 90's, DPS wailer 95 and will continue searching for a total domination ski.

 

Any ideas are much appreciated

My idea is that you add last year's (2011) Watea 101 to your list.

I'd add in the Sir Francis Bacon by Line. Wider than the prophet 90's but not so wide that they're a chore on groomed or in the park. Plus they are incredibly fun in the deep. But if your'e only considering those 3, then i wouldn't go with the Mantra as its not a twin tip. I'd say prophs if your'e gonna be in the park a good amount.

I would throw the Volkl Bridge in that mix since you mentioned park. 95 under foot and likes the whole mountain.
