Hi Everyone,

 

Looking at getting my first pair of freeride skis. I'm choosing between the Annex 108s or the Shreditor 102s.

 

I am 195 lbs, 6'0". I mainly ski in back bowls at Vail and like to spend time in the trees and some bumps. Ideally these skis would still do okay on a groomer here and there.

 

Please let me know your thoughts/suggestions. 

 

Also I'm looking at the Marker Griffon 110 binding. Is this a good choice?

 

Thank you in advance!

The Shreditor will be more fun in the bumps & trees, it is a real playful ski ad you cam lay it over on the firm stuff.

How will the shreditor perform in back bowls that may not have the best snow which is choppy and skiied off? From my understanding the Annex will do a better job of powering through those types of conditions

 Just some more context,

:

 

I am an advanced skiier comfortable with any blacks or double blacks. I currently have K2 Aftershock (86 mm underfoot) and looking to add this new pair as my "out west" ski and keep the Aftershock for at home here on the east coast

The Annex will do better there, not as well in the trees. Where are you looking to increase the performance? These skis are different enough that they both could coexist in the same quiver.

Since I don't live out west, I plan trips in advance and whatever snow conditions I get, I deal with them. So sometimes I don't have ideal snow conditions in bowls which may be skiied off, choppy, hard snow on top etc... I would like a ski that will help deal better with those conditions. And the rest of my time is mainly spent in the trees

Thats why it was my first suggestion.

So would you be able to recommend one of them over the other? Would you say the annex would perform poorly/worse in the trees compared to my Aftershocks?

Yes, the Sheditor. As far as if the Annex will perform better or worse than the Aftershock..depends on the snow and and trees. I still stand by my suggestion of the Sheditor.
