EastCoast & WestCoast ski suggestions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm taking my first trip out west this year and wanted to see about a good ski that would fit well out west that I could still use back home on the east coast.  I've been looking at the Rossignol S3 for my type of skiing but it doesn't look like it's a very good ski for the east coast.  I'm a good skier for east coast standards but not experienced out west (deep powder & ect.).  I'm more of an aggressive skier that likes to cut and goof-off more than speed.  I'm looking more for twin tips as I'm a snowboarder as well and enjoy hitting the terrain parks occasionally.  I'm 26 and 5'11" 200lbs in pretty good all-round shape.

Welcome to Epic. At your size, if you want a twin for the east that can also work as an all-mountain out west, short list. Volkl Kink or Nordica Ace of Spades would top my list for value, Stockli Rotor 84 if you have the $$.
