Eastern Canada One Ski Quiver

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been doing some considerable research here on Epic regarding a good ski for Eastern Canada. But I thought I would tap in to the Epic communities expertise to get some input.

 

As way of background, I'm 220 pds, 5'10" and between a 6-7/10 in skiing ability. My skiing generally consists of 50/50 on-off piste. Initially, I thought that the Volkl Kendo's would be a good ski, but I think with all of the great rocker technology out there, I should be taking advantage of it. After all the hype around the new Blizzard lineup, I'm leaning towards the Bonafide (not sure 98mm underfoot though).

 

Any thoughts/suggestions/comments? Any links to related threads would also be great, but I haven't found any that relate to us Easterners.

 

Cheers!

Being in Eastern Canada also, I would be glad to help. it would be useful to know where you ski mostly. could make a considerable difference.

I would suggest a  Line Prophet 90. Hopefully there is a demo day close to your location.

Thanks for the replies.

 

Generally I'll be skiing here in Ontario at Blue Mountain. Almost ashamed to admit it... but thus is life when your a student in S. Ontario.

 

Otherwise, I usually try to get over to Jay in Vt. at least once a year.

Don't be ashamed, skiing is skiing.  Blue is better than our local puddlejumpers in S.Ontario.

Where does one go off piste for 50% of the time in Eastern Canada?? The forest is usually too thick to ski through and the resorts frown upon it usually.

I guess it depends on your definition of "off piste:. I am guessing that many people consider glades and other not groomed off piste. Then again the woods do offer surprising opportunities.
