Please help me pick some new skis

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So I destroyed one of my skis today.  I'm not sure what I'm more upset about, my busted ski or my busted face.  Anyway, I need to find replacements pretty fast.  Ideally the ski would double as an on-piste/park ski.  Definitely not looking for a fully symmetrical park ski but something with at least a partial twin tip.  Something with a waist between 80 and 90mm and between 170 and 180cm in length.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. 

 

I am an expert skier and I like to ski fast so something that is really going to hold an edge at high speeds is important.  But I'm also looking for something with a bit of flex for butters.

 

Thanks

Volkl Bridge?  It's relatively inexpensive also.

Sorry about your situation; hope your body mends.

yea the bridge is definitely a solid choice...but i feel like they are a little too similar to the shoguns i have.

Oh and if it helps, the skis I smashed were Rossignol S80 Freerides. Really love these skis but I'm a little hesitant to get the same ski that blew up on me.

Stockli rotor 82- is a season or two old( but new) is symmetrical but definitely will work for what you want- can be had for less than $500 w/bindings and is the best build quality money could buy. If i was looking for an on-piste/park ski this would be it.

^ great suggestion eastcoast. I'm definitely going to look into the Rotor82. Have you personally used these skis? My concern is that it might be a little too park oriented. At 112 at the tip and 82 underfoot I'm not sure that it is going to carve the way I want it to.

Check out the Surface Watch Life. Great ski for all mountain/park! Plus the price point is great!
