Ski buying advice - please!
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Hi and welcome!
The bonafide is a very versatile ski choice.
If you want to get a bit more input from people it might help to post where you will be doing most of your skiing?
What you will need from a ski varies somewhat from east to west. I am assuming your in the USA somewhere rather than Europe or Japan?
Check out the RAMP Woodpecker. If you're skiing bumps on a 98mm pair of skis will be smacking into eachother.
The woodpecker is 90mm waist with a bit of early rise. The ski rips on groomers, I have no problem taking them to 60 and the early rise will help you get ontop of the deeper snow and through crud. 19m radius lets you rip big GS turns but still rip it up in the trees. Has a flat tail too so your turns won't wash out like a rockered ski does. The ski is fairly stiff and the tips don't rattle when skiing hardpack.
Full disclosure I work for RAMP. I saw your post and thought that the woodpecker would be perfect for you. Let me know if you have and questions and I'll help you out.
