Good bump skis that are not dedicated mogul skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

First off, I'm not looking for a recommendation per se, but rather attempting to start a discussion. Many of you might recognize me from the tgr forums (although I did post here years ago under a different account), so you know that I've completely lost touch with the "frontside" ski market over the last say 10 years. I can't remember the last time I demoed a ski that wasn't in the ballpark of 100 mm (or wider). And at my "home" mountain pretty much everybody skis 100-120 mm as daily drivers.

 

So does that type of ski exist? When I look at reviews, I see a lot of jibby / park style twins, and carvers, but in my mind the wide tails, and deep sidecuts would be more of a hinderance than an asset in bumps. Am I wrong? Edjamacate me.

Here you go, Scott's 2014 The Ski. While not a bump specific ski it is one of the best skis in the bumps and no other ski offered today...err tomorrow has more bump pedigree than this ski.

My older brother had a pair of the originals back in the day. Love that they didn't mess up the graphic by "modernizing" it.

Bobbie tried many variations over the years but as they say...nothing beats the original.

I agree with The Ski as a bump ski for me (5'11", 190) in the 175cm... but not in the 185.  the 107mm 185 Nordica Vagabond actually felt more nimble in the bumps than The Ski (93mm at 185?) in that length, although The Ski had a much, much higher speed limit (in 175 and 185) than the Hobo, err, Vagabond.
