Expanding my Quiver all moutain / powder adivce:

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone 1st post on here etc.

 

Im looking to expand my quiver a bit this season, thus far I have each end of it taken care of I use a set of GS skis for the piste and I have some Libertys for deep days (replacing with Rocker2's though).  Im looking for a middle ground as not all of the trips I go on allow me to take two sets of skis with me.

 

Im 6'4 and 210 (96kg) and im a very fast and aggressive skier on groomers I will rail road them usually topping 70mph on them, I ski in Europe so im used to the steeps and icy and moguls and bumps.

 

For all mountain / one ski trips Ive been considering the following: Volkl Mantra in 184 or 191, Kastle MX88 in 188 or Dynastar Cham 97.

 

For powder / adding to the quiver ive been looking at the Salomon Rocker 2 115 in 188 or the 122 in 192, or Volkl Katana in 191.

 

Thanks.

Look at ON3P Caylors: http://www.blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/on3p-caylor-191cm

I have a pair of 191s if you're interested.

When I can only bring one pair, it's the Atomic Nomad Savages, without question.  With a 93 mm waist, a little early rise, and a carvy mid/tail section, they cover a huge range of conditions.  We're both big and like carvy piste skis, so you might want to check them out.

All-mouton skis ???

 

that, of course, demands a set of 'goats'...
