I'm looking to buy a powder ski for Tahoe for the deeper days (assuming those don't completely become a thing of the past). My main ski is a Line Prophet 98. I love the Prophet 98 for almost all conditions, but while skiing some knee deep pow at Sierra last season I realized I could really use a dedicated powder ski.
I am 5'8", 170 lbs, and somewhere between a hi-intermediate and a low-advanced skier. I like skiing the trees when there's good snow, I like jumping off of (small) features, and I sometimes open up the throttle when the conditions allow it. My skills are developing quickly as each year progresses, but I only started skiing 4 years ago.
I am currently considering:
Armada JJ 175
Line Mr. Pollard's Opus 178
Faction Candide 4.0 183
All of these would be the 2014 models from last season. This ski would be for the 5-20% of the days with the deepest powder (8"+ of fresh). Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!
