5" 10", 200 lbs, fit, type 3 skier
although getting old (>50) I am not about pushing the athletic envelope anymore as much as savoring the form.
Looking to do some more deep powder this year (Big sky was awesome last year)
Currently on Blizzard 8.5 Ti - I loved the way they were responsive on groomers but also handled the crud and some powder . But I really enjoyed the floaty feeling I got from a pair of Armada TST I tried last year and am looking to get a pair of power powder tools. The armadas were commandeered by my son.
Since I am looking to do some touring as well, I probably will put AT bindings on them.
And since my technica boots are old and heavy, my wallet is really going to get a spanking since I'll be opening and closing it a lot.
But back to the skis. I am going to try and be more of a ski bum with what remains of my life. I really liked how light the armadas were and with AT in mind lighter is better. But I also like the control the blizzards gave me. Like a true austrian, those skis were stiff and always made me feel 'in control'.
Since the soul 7 isn't even on Rossignol's website, I dont know how people are demoing them! There was a good review by someone in here comparing the Soul 7 and saying the DPS was the only thing close to it. (although the dps is twice the price) Are there any people here who have been on Grace skis and can comment on their 'feeling'?
