In Search of Powder....Skis

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I mostly ski in the east. Don't see any real deep powder. However for those days that I could get in some coupled with a planned trip out west the end of this season and more for next, I am looking for advice on power skis. I am an upper advanced / expert skier....on groomers, hard pack and ice. Basically a novice in real powder. So I would be looking for something easy to use for someone not skilled in deeper powder. My current quiver is basically Stockli and Kastle. The closest thing I have now is a Stockli y85 in 177mm. Any suggestions on ski and sizing? I am 6-1" 180 lbs.  Thanks.

You might like the Rossignol Super 7 or Atomic Automatic. If you're a bit jibbier, there's the Atomic Bent Chetler. I think they all come in 188ish lengths, which is probably what you want in skis with that much rocker. In this space there is a lot of competition, and it really depends on how you want to ride your powder (float, in it) and how aggressively you charge it, or foresee yourself charging it.

 

If you want to slay powder instead of surfing it, try the Volkl Katana. It's great, if you can bend it :)
