Ski recommendation needed. All mountain 90+ mm

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Here is the deal, these skis are for a very athletic 210# 6' skier who has under 20 days in his ski career. He can navigate double blacks on soft days and is an aspiring carver. 

He owns a  Dynastar legend 8000 that he will use for firm days and to carve. 

Please suggest an all mountain ski that will be great for learning but hold up to his weight and aspirations. He will use this ski east and west.

Many years ago I sold cross country gear at a local ski shop. When dealing with a terminally indecisive customer, I would eventually suggest that they take their two top picks, stand with them in front of a full length mirror (the one that show several angled profiles) and select the skis that they would want to be seen carrying. Worked flawlessly.

Or, they could read the archives.

Just sayin....

SJ please explain to me why my questions are so outrageous. It is true that I haven't yet achieved the infinite wisdom one attains by working in a ski shop so I merely humble myself to those more worthy to answer one of life's great riddles.
