One Ski Quiver

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys,

 

New use and first post so hopefully its on topic for where it ends up.

 

Am looking for a one ski quiver and was wondering whether someone could give opinions on the skis I am looking at, or suggestions of ones to look at. 

 

I am an advanced skiier 6 foot, 70kg (156 lb i think). Because of my light weight I sometimes cannot handle certain skis as I just dont have the power to push them around. Am currently skiing on some old as the hills Seth Pistols which are 95 underfoot. 

 

Im thinking of an all mountain/big mountain ski with a waist width of anywhere between 95-108. 

 

I tried the Volkl Bridge and found them quite nice, but have also been recommended a pair of Moment Belafontes. Reading a few reviews it also seems that the Blizzard Bonafides are pretty awesome.

 

Which of these would be best, or are there any other recommendations? I ski primarily in NZ so the majority would be skiing through crud, heavy new snow with a spot of groomers and the occasional powder day (virtually everything)

 

Cheers

I'm 5'9" and 150.  I ski the Bonafides in the 180 length.  I like them quite a bit, although I'm not fully used to their length and stiffness yet.  For you, with more leverage, I would think they'd be great.  I guess it somewhat depends on what "advanced" means.  The bones don't read your mind, they need to be driven.

Volkl bridges and moment belefonte are two pretty different skis.

Where are you skiing in NZ?

Thats exactly what I thought, perhaps the advice was based on product loyalty!

I ski at Treble Cone in the South Island but also ski now and then in North America
