I am moving to Salt Lake City for the winter, and I'm trying to pick 2 pairs of skis for the season. I would love any recommendations for 2 skis that will serve me well at Alta/Snowbird/Solitude. I'm 21yrs, 6'1 165lbs. I hate trying to classify my level, but I've been skiing for 16 years and I am pretty confident. Probably level 8.
My initial thoughts are something 85-90mm at the waist for everyday use and something 105-120mm for powder days. Maybe the Bilzzard Bushwacker or Volkl Kendo paired with Rossi s7 or Atomic Bent Chetler? I have also been looking at the ON3P Billy Goat or Caylor as the fat ski.
I am also not opposed to demoing after I move to SLC, but ideally I would have at least one pair of skis when I show up in December. Really, any input would be awesome.
