Last fall I bought a pair of Bonafides as it was strong recommended as the go to ski in the 98mm width and as a do it all ski.
I found it generally to be very good for most every thing but one thing you cant do when you are on them is go lazy, then you cant work them.
Being 6 foot 2 inches and about 200 pounds i found them totally lacking in deep pow and in beat up pow. They were simply too difficult to control and several times I just bounced out of them because I was sinking too low. And I consider myself to be an expert skier although I am not in my best forms, which is to be taken care off for next winter.
At the moment I am eyeing some deals on wider skis, the Icelantic Keeper and the Movement Super Turbo for example. Anyone have and opinion on those skis?
Im looking for a ski that is best at pow but can do other things well... that is functional in other places. The Icelantic is appealing to me since I am Icelandic :)
I missed out on some Hoji's the other day but afterwards I think I'm glad because the radius seems to be way too high on them.
Where to go? What to do?
