I wasn't trying to summon a recommendation, but thanks. I ski the East...Southern VT and Gore, Whiteface. I am a level 7-8 skier that ski's most days on a Volkl Racetiger SL 165. Love that ski, just looking for something for more varied terrain after a snow fall or when the snow softens up in the afternoon. I am 6', 220 pounds and am thinking that a 3 ski quiver might look something like the Racetiger, MX 88 and the Bones. I love the "idea" of a powder ski, but in all honesty I think that a 98 underfoot will more than suffice for my "powder days" here. Am also curious about the Bushwacker at 88 underfoot being that I already a ski for the ice and hard pack that we see so often. Looking to improve my off-piste and bump skiing this season. Any input would be great. Thanks again.
I just tried a pair of Blizzard Bushwaker (180) today and I didn't liked them at all on the hard pack. I think its because of the tip rocker; as hard as I tried, I couldn't engage the tip that kept fluffing over the snow and it was like if I had to ski with skis too shorts for me: they became very unstable and shaky if I ride too fast or tried to be more demanding). I think they would be terrific for someone near 190 (I'm 215 lbs) because I had a lot of fun in bumps and trees (and they have great grip on ice ) Since last year, I'm on Dynastar Sultan Legend 85 and I would'nt change it for the Bushwaker... I tried them because even if i love the Legend, i would like skis more light, less of a tank.
I will keep searching! Any suggestions?
