This, from Praxis:
This is the ski that was on the FWT first place podium 3 out of 6 big mountain events at last season's tour. No metal . Code EPIC should get 10% off. For the next short while, custom flex and topsheet at "stock" price. Keith at Praxis can advise on length and stiffness.
If you want to go local in Portland, check out ON3P. Solid stiff skis. Some nice designs.
For my .02, I'm not such a fan of the Icelantics - other than maybe Keeper or Gypsy. Even there - I just think they are behind the curve - especially for powder performance. Some other reasonable people here disagree... Great in their day, but.... And yes, I admit I have not been on any of their skis since I sold my Nomads, Shamans and Scouts a few years back.
Shape-wise, the Salomon q 115 might be worth a look. Maybe Atomic Automatic. The Blizzards have a good reputation. Just something decently stiff, modern shape & rocker, decently north of 110 wide - probably between 115 and 125, depending... Some other good suggestions upthread. But at your weight, to reiterate, you'll need something with some beef. A bit on the narrow end, but the Helldorado is one beefy surefooted ski (and the only one of the skis in this paragraph I have actually skied).
I'm sure I am forgetting something.
Regardless, keep the Elans.
Just my .02
My usual and obvious "disclaimer": I am a definite Praxis fan.
