Just sold my Head Peak 78's, and ready to buy some new gear. I am looking for some advice, as I don't have good accessability to demo ski's. I generally ski out west in the spring, but always look for powder and mogul runs. My Head ski's were not Mogul friendly, or maybe it was just me! I would like an all mountain ski that favors moguls and can handle powder. Basically, something that is really easy to handle and turns quick. I am 6"2 and 175 lbs. I am a pretty good skier, I would say 7 out of 10. Really want to work on mastering the Moguls in the next few years. All that said, I would love to hear comments on what ski (assuming I can only have 1) I should haul out to Vail with me in March. My top candidate now is the Bridge, just because from what I have read it seems to be a good all mountain ski that will do better in the bumps over the Mantra. Skiing in early March I don't find a ton of powder unless I am lucky, which is why I am leaning towards the Bridge. I know there has been a lot of talk on this very subject, but would love to hear some sizing reco's also. My Head's were 171, and I think 78 under foot. I am looking forward to trying something larger under foot and I read that the rocker type ski is a lot easier to turn, and I am hoping that this means on the moguls as well! My head's did ok on Moguls until powder came into play, so I am thinking this has something to do with the under foor dimension?
Net, what do you think? Any other ski's I should be considering?? Is a 177 in the Bridge too short? I am a little concerned that going any longer will make the bumps even harder!
Thanks in advnace.
