I'm looking to treat myself to some skis when i head to the US from the UK for a 3 week ski trip. Hoping you guys could part with some of your wisdom on what you'd recommend as a decent ski for me.
- 5'11'' , 190 lbs athletic
- level 7, aggressive & improving skier, like to challenge myself, 70 / 30 off / on piste. Not as good as i'd like to be but love the challenge and just smashing down the mountain. will be getting some 1 to 1 coaching when i get to JH or Telluride.
-. ski mostly single blacks in US
- recently skied 2011 Gotama's in 186, really enjoyed them but were a challenge on steep, icy runs. But i did like the extra width and feel underfoot for the most part.
I really like the sound of the Cochise, but not sure if it will be 'too much' ski for me? Also looked at the Bonafides and Mantras.
Anyway, over to you, the experts!!!
