Midwest Speed, Crud & Equipment

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Been enjoying the "Off Season" this Summer riding my 1 by 10 dirt jumper mountain bike! Having a blast & in "Ski" withdrawals at the same time...

Skied 40+ times 2012-2013 season, mostly in the Midwest:

Chestnut
Devils Head
Cascade
Tyrol Basin
Granite Peak (GP)
Alpine Valley (Home Hill)
Little Switz
Sunburst
Wilmont

Out West:
Heavenly
Squaw Valley
Arizona Snow Bowl

200# plus skier that loves going FAST! I hit 62.3 mph at GP this year. Skiing Nordica Fire Arrow 80ti skis 164cm with Hot Rod 95 boots.

Looking for all in one quiver ski to be used mostly in the Midwest. I LIKE the hard pack groomed runs because of my interest in speed. Also happy with my Fire Arrow carving front side skis during the 1st half of the day. The afternoon skiing experience includes MUCH crud and piles of snow pushed all over Midwest hills by novice skiers & boarders.

Considering the Rossignol Experience 88 skis to blast through the rough afternoon conditions of Midwest hills.

I would appreciate anyone's feedback with equipment solutions to skiing crud in the Midwest!

    For a one ski answer I would say the Fischer Progressor 9[ its got a new name this year but whatever the current model is] or the Progressor 10. I've skied the 9's on everything from bullet proof ice to 3' of new out west and they are great. Excellent Nastar skis also.

Thanks for the feedback! I pulled the trigger on a pair of used Rossi Experience 88s at 178cm length. All I need is SNOW to test em out...

CHEERS & Cy'all on the slopes!!

yikes, 62.3 at Granite Peak ... didn't think they had a run with the drop to allow that!  Of course, with ice it must be possible smile.gif    Being a old Cubs fan I'll just go with "this is the year" for snow ....
