Looking for a good Powder/all mountain ski. I live out west and dont have the money to get a powder ski, carving skiing, and park ski. So want one that has everything. I already ahve a ski that is semi park, so more leaning towards a wider ski. Thanks for the input!

Hi srooney, I haven't skied any of the skis on your list, but I've seen some great feedback on the Armada TST.  In face Shima just demo'd it and bought the women's version last weekend on a powder day.

How big are you? Makes a huge difference with regards to what I am going to recommend. Where do you ski out west?

I have only skied the CRJ. It was a really fun and buttery ski. And it was great in the pow too.

Hi - lot of the skis in your title have been reviewed extensively over at TGR. Suggest a search over there, read up, then perhaps try posting about something more specific, like how the top two or three that interest you would work at your size, your terrain.

Yes I did! Fell in love with them in the powder last weekend tree skiing with Trekchick and some of other friends...super responsive, light, playful, turns on a dime. Went skiing again this weekend, I only skied them for a couple runs yesterday to test the hard snow out and didn't care for them on the icy morning stuff since they were a little chattery in the rocker tip (switched back to my Kenjas) but when it turned slushy later in the day I traded back to them for a few mogul runs before calling it a day, definitely make moguls a lot more doable for me...then today we had a little snow all morning and things weren't as hard as yesterday so I decided to try them again in non powder conditions again (since I am wanting to write a fair review in different conditions of them on here) and ended up staying on them all day, very impressed with these the more and more I use them!

I will write a thorough review of these sometime this week.

Not sure if you saw, but I did write a review for the TSTw: http://www.epicski.com/products/2012-armada-tstw-ski/reviews/2625

I just purchased TST's for my son - they won't even be mounted until next season, so no experience on them, but I really like the dimensions and design of the ski. A good amount of tip rocker, minimal but usefull camber under foot to the tail - looks like it will be an awesome performer in a large variety of conditions and all the reviews I've seen have been great. I can see where they could be a bit chattery on hard conditions, but staying more neutral balance to take advantage of the slight camber under foot, getting them on a sharp edge should be sufficient for an all mountain ski.
