Atomic Alibi vs Line Prophet 98

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys:

 

I am looking for purchase a new ski this year for East Coast skiing (Blue Mountain, Whiteface, Jay Peak, Mt Tremblant).  I am 6'4" 205lbs.  I have skied since 3 years old and now I am 37 years old.   I can ski pretty much ski anything in the east.  I am looking to buy either the Alibi or the Prophet. I am looking for something around 100mm underfoot.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look at.  I love skiing moguls, glades but most of my skiing is done on-piste.   What can you guys tell me about these skis.

At your size if you like to go fast on piste you will probably overpower the P98, it tends to chatter quite a bit when going fast for me  (and you have about 50 pounds on me, but of course wouldn't ride the 172cm I do) it would be a great mogul ski, but I'm afraid you won't like it too much on piste and might find it too soft.

 

Have never skied the Alibi.

 

If you are not planning on getting something on sale during late/summer season you might wanna take a look at the new Blizzard Brahma, it's 88mm underfoot which seems to be plenty for the time of skiing you are describing.
