Hi i need help decidng in which ski of k2's to buy. I either want h shreditor 102 or the 112. I ski at jay peak in vermont i am a teen 6 feet and 150 lb and ski advanced. I want a one ski quiver because that is all i can aford that will rip the hardpack and moguls while there is no snow but hten float and pivot on a dime when there is. Here is my list of prioty:
1 Versatility
2 Quickness for EC glades (SOMETHING I CAN THROW SIDEWAYS TO SLOW DOWN IN TIGHT SITUATION AND THAT WILL ALLOW ME TO MANEUVER THE TREES)
3 Floaty, turfy, and easy to ski in pow
3(ALMOST EQUALLY IMPORTANT) grips hard pack
5 Able to ski trees and moguls even if there is no new snow

BTW I DO NOT SKI PARK BUT I DO WANT SOMETHNG STABLE FOR JUMPING OFF ROCKS And SMALL CLIFFS AND THE OCASIONAL JUMP

is the shreditor 112 ir 102 better for me? PS this will be my everyday ski

The 102 will be a little more nimble, but I  have never skied Jay Peak so I'm not sure if you want more float or more nimble.  

At your weight, I'd be inclined to say 102. 

 

I have the Remedy 102, the women's version of the Shredditor, and like its versatility.

Are you dead set on the K2? There are a ton of other skies in the 98-105mm range to check out, all with excellent online deals right now. I'm currently on the Prophet 98 186 which does everything your looking to including excellent edge on our EC pow, lol. I am looking at the. 4FRNT Cody this off season for 14-15. If you are set then knowing the amount of days where the conditions are hard vs softi would get the 102 IMO

everyday ski at Jay? niether but then again I do not believe in everyday skis.

 

My suggest is this a narrow 90 mm realativety stiff skis for not powder days, and get the fatter K2 if you heart is set on one for powder day. then buy the skinnier one one size down a "inbetweener". othere wise just get the 102 for "everything" realizing you are losing a lot especially on the hard snow spectrum.

I'm going to write a Josh-ese translation add-in for EpicSki. :rolleyes

 

Everyday ski at Jay? Neither. Then again, I do not believe in everyday skis.

 

My suggestion is this: A narrow 90 mm relatively stiff ski for not-powder days. Get the fatter K2, if your heart is set on one of those two, for powder days. Then buy the skinnier model one size down as a "inbetweener". Otherwise just get the 102 for "everything," realizing you are losing a lot especially on the hard snow spectrum. 

 

Josh, he's a teen ager. No budget for two pairs of skis. He said so explicitly.

 

cagro25, how did you end up fixated on those two specific skis?
