Looking For A Good One Ski Quiver For Utah -- Need Advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a good one-ski quiver for Utah. Something that performs well in a foot or two of powder but also doesn't look silly if you take it into the bumps, and can still carve turns at speed on the frontside.

I am 6'5" tall, 200lbs. I like a very, very stiff, precise-feeling ski. I can't stand it when it is difficult to get an edge on a ski (because it causes me to ski cautiously and not be confident), usually because the ski is either too flexible, not cambered enough, or has too much rocker in the tail.

I think I am basically looking for a ski in the 90-110cm waist width range that is very stiff, probably has a good amount of camber and front rocker/early rise, but has a flat or close to flat tail (i don't understand why so many skis have so much tail rocker -- unless you're going to be landing switch or skiing backwards, what is the point -- it just causes the ski to wash out of turns?).

Anything fit this bill?

Models i am considering include:
Dynastar Cham 97/107
Blizzard Bonafide
Rossignol Experience 98
Volkl Mantra
Nordica Hell and Back
Line Prophet 98
Moment Bellefonte
Blizzard Magnum 8.5
Nordica Fire Arrow
Kastle Mx88
Kastle bmx98

But maybe the best one is not on that list, i don't know.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Try the (2013) Volkl Kendo in 184. I just demoed one for a week in Colorado and it was awesome. (im 6-2, 195). Solid ski. Best resort ski I have ever tried for more of the traditional type skier in our weight range.
