My quiver has a large hole in it. Too many soft powder skis - S7, Katana, Cochise, Sidestash, etc.
My narrowist ski is an old Atomic Kailas, which if memory serves me is a backcountry version of the original Snoop Daddy (~88mm).
I need a ski for the impending Juneuary conditions (ICE) that we get every January in Tahoe (at least the last couple).
But, I'm a big guy (6'6", 210 lbs), advanced to expert skier, who likes speed, non-racing backgound. They all seem ridiculoulsy short, coming from the big mountain genre.
My Sidestash has pretty good grip for a 108mm ski, but I'm sure there are much better options out there.
Oh yeah, I'm not looking to spend a grand on a ski with the latest gadgetry, although the Kastles look like a great ski.
Any recommendations, especially in the value oriented segment?
