Leaving for Park City for the last week of March. I'll be bringing a pair of 180cm Bushwackers for slush and any fresh powder (I don't own "real" powder skis..) These were a lot of fun in sunny Spring conditions in Vermont last weekend.
I'm having the "what other skis to bring" dilemma...I have FX 84s (176cm) and Sultan 85s (178cm) that I'm considering. The few times I've skied the FXs (on firm but not too hard conditions) they have been fun. They are really quick and agile and have a surprising amount of power, but I've read the FX 84s can wimp out in Spring soft snow/crud conditions.
The Sultans are in the quiver but I haven't fallen in love with them...probably because I take them out during the worst conditions we see here during the year (which can be bad!)...real hardpack crap, ice after rain, etc...so I'm wondering if they would shine more in some better conditions out west.
So I have no experience with these skis in conditions I might see next week. Any thoughts/experiences on thee two skis for Spring conditions? (I Usually avoid trees, but I like to ski varied terrain.)
