So i love my tigersharks. Was thinking do i 1. try and upgrade them? 2. compliment them with a different type of ski?
i have a 176 cm http://www.skinet.com/ski/gear/volkl-tigershark-12-2009
I ski 25 days a year at whiteface NY Gore mountain NY belleayre NY. i love groomers and have no complaints about my tigersharks. I was wondering would a 2013 carver be alot better than these for the conditions i mostly see in the north east? I figured no.
I also will average about 11 days out west. Big sky 8 days and then a week in the SLC area or denver (wherever i can find a relevant conference to make it work related) .
I was thinking because i wont see much improvement in a 4 year newer ski for the groomers . maybe i should get an all mountain ski?
I'm 6'2" and 220lbs.
i was between the 177cm mantras and 184s.
I hate moguls. enjoy glades and maybe wish my tigersharks had a smaller turning radius for glades. I also enjoy staying in the resort but cutting off trail when theres powder or fresh snow. We dont see much powder on the east. And i love nice groomed steeps and have no complaints with my tigersharks there. Would the mantras be a logical choice for me and should i do 177 or 184? I own a pair of icelantic park skis (170 cm) and they are awesome for the park but i hate how they dont hold an edge well on the steeps or even getting to the park in the icy northeast.
