There are days when the resort is un-crowded when most skiers have gone hiking in search of those last few fresh turns and the cut up runs are wide open. Rather than following the crowd, I sometimes find myself wanting to rip around at high speed in-bounds...crud busting.
These times seem to demand a different kind of ski. One that just maintains a big arc no matter the surface and is more of "go through" the chop and bumps than surf over fluff or turn around bumps. My quiver is mostly too playful (or possibly too short / soft / light) for the kind of skiing I am talking about so I'm thinking of adding one more "serious" ski for when I am in that kind of mood. I'm thinking regular camber and possibly a slight rocker on front only, long radius sidecut, longish and stiffish.
I'm planning on some demo days.
Any suggestions on a demo "short list"?
So far my list from reading/researching includes:
Kastle MBX 108 & 128
Stockli Stormrider Pro
Dynastar Legend Pro 115
Should I eliminate or add anything?
