Which All Mountain Ski for West Coast - Rocker2 92 (or 90) vs Rossi 88 (or 98) ??

Hey all!

 

Just recently moved to CO after east coast skiing for about 10 years using 168cm Dyanamic vr 21 series form the beginning ...After skiing about 5 times out here, I realized I need a ski thats more versatile to handle powder, fresh snow, crud, and the completely different conditions I've seen out here.

 

I am an advanced skier that can handle most blacks out here, however, I mostly enjoy just skiing everywhere from blues to black to trees to powder.  I'm 5'9 - 160lbs and am looking at skis between 169cm - 174cm as I feel I have more maneuverability/control (not sure if this is actually true)

 

So I've narrowed my decisions to the following

 

Salomon Rocker 2 92

Salomon Rocker 2 90

Rossi Experience 88

Rossi Experience 98 

 

Which would you choose and why?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

rossi 88. Just a fantastic all condition ski. For me it works well on everything I put it on. Hard blue ice is a bit of a bitch, but far better than a wider underfoot. I don't pull out the fat ski's until the snow is above the knee, the 88"s do just fine. Spring slop they rail through smooth as glass. And if you like to lay them over on the hardpack and let them carve, awesome stability and speed, g forces will rip your ears off.  

 

I would go no wider that the 88, just for speed in edge change if you ski that way, other than under foot size I don't know that much about the other ski's you are considering, but you have my thoughts. :popcorn
