Hey guys, first post here. I'm hoping to get some help with a new powder ski purchase.
Does anyone have experience with the Volkl Katana and Rossignol Super 7? A local shop has both of these skis on sale right now (last year's model) and as far as I can tell, there's no difference between these and the 2013 models. I'm not looking for this ski to be a one ski quiver, but I want to rip well on resort powder days for the sierra cement in Tahoe.
I'm 5'8", 195 lbs and an advanced skier, but looking to make the full time move to Tahoe this winter and get 100+ days in and call myself an expert skier. My favorite places to ski are steeps, trees, and the backcountry.
I want to be able to ride and land switch, which the Super 7s look great for, but I'm not sure how well the Katanas would do there. Any Katana owners with feedback here would be greatly appreciated.
I'm currently on Rossignol S3s (98 underfoot) and I want something wider and stiffer for the deep powder days that are coming this season (fingers crossed!!!)
