Hi guys, looking for a second ski to use when out west. It needs to be versatile enough to handle hardpack and powder. I have demoed the Armada JJs, found them to be a great ski, the only problem being none of the local shops carry them. Skiing switch is important, as is durability. I want to buy local, because being a ski instructor at the local hill, I get some substantial discounts. Brands are limited to K2, Salomon, Rossignol, Line, Atomic. I am looking at the Atomic Bent Chetler, Salomon Rocker2, and the Line Mr.Pollard's Opus. I am an advanced-expert skier, 6'2", 240 lbs.
Any other suggestions, any thoughts? Nobody in my town knows what they are talking about.
