Well, after a fairly funny story involving backwards-mounted skis and a boatload of store credit, I've found myself in the market for a new pair of skis and bindings. I'm looking for a good, all-mountain ski, and a decent pair of bindings to go with them.
-I'm a taller and heavier skier, at around 6'2" and 250lbs.
-I'm a solid type 3.
-I ski about 70% on the east coast, 30% out west, and I most often ski at either Mad River Glen or Jackson Hole.
-I ski pretty much everything except for race courses and backcountry, whether it be moguls, trees, groomers, or even the occasional park lap.
So, because of where I ski, I'm basically looking for something that can hold a good edge on ice and hardpack, but still have decent float in the powder for when I'm out west. As far as details go, I'd like something around 87-92, but I can be convinced to go a bit wider or narrower, if it would make for a more spot-on ski. Twintips are nice, but are far from necessary and I'm fine with or without them. That being said, here are some skis I dug up that might be good. Any additional recommendations or votes of confidence are more than welcome, and I'll be sure to respond to any ideas.
Line Prophet 90's
-sound pretty good overall
-not sure how they would hold up on ice
-not sure how they would hold up for a heavier skier
Salomon Rocker 2 92's
-they appear to be a remake of the twenty twelves, which were my original purchase, and have since been destroyed before I could even try them out.
-not sure what has been changed this year
-not as highly reviewed as the other two skis
-very well reviewed
-Apparently hold an edge pretty well
-not so sure how they ski for heavier skiers
Once again, any recommendations are good ones. It'd be great to hear from some fellow heavyweights, but anyone's opinions are welcome.
Thanks for reading, and have a good day.
