Looking to update my wider ski in a two ski quiver
Had the Watea 94. fun, playful. really easy in untracked. but deflects easily in heavier snow
Next is my current ski (Elan 1010 / Olympus) Stupid easy in good snow. Holds an edge on the frontside. If it has a deficit it is that it gets knocked around in bad snow. I dont look for bad snow but thats the reality when you fly, and ski everyday (vs picking your days as a local)
I've skied the Bushwhacker/Bonafide/Cochise line.
I liked them but didnt love them.
To me they were great for charging, but I felt like i couldnt relax.
I did not try them in the best conditions (spring refreeze) but thats my recollection.
So I'm looking for something a little less than the flipcores but more than the other two.
Waist 110 +/- .
I take two skis on Western trips, so i view this waist size as a good practical / resort powder ski.
