I have skied off an on all my life out west (Tahoe, Utah, Cascades, and Canada). I typically spend 50% of my day on groomed and 50% looking for powder while avoiding the mogels. I usually take three 4 to 5 day ski trips a year.
Last year I demoed several skis. What I learned was I loved the Rossi S86's (no longer made), K2 apache (ok ski, wasnt very good in the powder or carving), and a wider ski. The wider ski (I forgot the name) tip would constantly flap on steeper runs and burn out my legs absorbing it. I am not sure what causes it.
About me: 6'2", 240 lbs, inter/advanced
I am considering the Rossi 98's, Dynastar Legend 94, Blizzard Bonafide, Atomic Crimson/Theory or the Vokhl Kendo.
Based on my body, skiing habits, and avoiding the "flap" I would appreciate some feed back and recommendations.
