After some great advice on demoing allmountain skis last fall (tested a bunch and bought the Nordica Hell & Back last winter), I now have a question on a nice powder ski to go with the HB.
I ski in the Alps. I'm 6', 185 lbs and I am a level 7-8 skier. I love the Hell & Back to bits, but on the very deep and soft stuff and in bumps or uneven terrain they tend to hook up in the tail. So I am looking for a playful, easy to ski ski with tail rocker and some great float. I'm not very speedy, just want something easy goning for the soft/fresh sno days (for everything else, I have the HB's).
I was thinking Atomic Automatic (186), after reading reviews on this and other websites.
Any other suggestions? I like light, flexible and manoeuverable.
So, which skis should I really (try to) demo next fall?
Nordica Patron? K2 Shreditor? Fischer Big Stix? Salomon Rocker2?
By the way: DPS, Praxis, 4frnt, Faction, Black Crows are not widely available in Europe, so I will probably not be able to demo them.
