Can the Line Sir Francis Bacon be a "one ski quiver"?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi my name is Sam and i am a 5'11" 130lb teenager that is looking for a "one ski quiver". I live in Colorado and ski quite a bit, just looking for something that i can take in the backcountry, moguls, groomers, and a tiny bit of park....maybe. Im looking at anywhere from 100mm to 120mm underfoot. I kinda have some park skis right now so i dont need a ski that is great in the park.

There's a good conversation here that might help: http://www.epicski.com/t/111174/what-the-best-one-ski-quiver#post_1443719

 

Sam, following what was said on the other thread, you have a lot of great options between 98 and 108 that would do most of what you want. What kind of ski do you enjoy now?   Can   fill in the blank   make a one ski quiver? Sure. Just inventory what the majority of your ski days/conditions are, choose accordingly, and live with them when they're out of their element. I'd think the Line 105, Head Inferno ( $355 at dawg's shop in OR ), Blizzard Cochise, etc... would do you well. Honestly, there's much available that has already been mentioned. Out of curiousity what are folks that are around your size and riding style using on your mountain?

Thanks for the plug, but the Infernos sold out last week. I have an as-new demo pair I am selling for $310.  Skied like 10 runs.  Sick ski, just pounds crud at speed, super easy to ski in junk snow and new snow.  

 

I haven't skied the SFB. Skis I like in that wider "do everything" category are Elan Olympus/1010, Head Rev 105, Blizzard Cochise (more of a burly big-mountain ski if you get the longer length), Kastle BMX108, Volkl Katana, K2 Sidestash, Armada TST. I haven't skied everything in the category though.

Hijack! How long?

I wouldn't consider anything over 90-95mm a logical choice for a one ski quiver.

 

And I'm not going to debate it with anyone either.
