Need some help. I am an advanced/expert skier looking for some new skis. I'm 6 foot and weigh about 190 pounds. I've narrowed my search to two skis: the Line Prophet 90 and the Nordica Steadfast.
I am Colorado skier and spend most of my days in bounds (my backcountry days are few and far between anymore). I ski all-mountain and am looking for a ski that will balance the variety of terrain I ski - something that holds well on hardpack, but can handle steeps and some powder, trees, and bumps. I ski a lot of bumps so while I don't need a mogul ski, I do want a do-it-all ski that can handle the bumps without too much difficulty. I've been skiing (including a lot of bumps) on 182 Black Diamond Verdicts (107 MM underfoot) so anything will likely be an improvement in the bumps!
I've focused in on skis in the 85-90 mm underfoot range and based on what I've read the Line Prophet 90 and the Nordica Steadfast seem like the two skis that might best meet (balance) my needs.
I'd appreciate any input on 1) which of these skis might be better based on what I've described, and 2) are there any other skis that I may have dismissed that I should definitely be considering. Part of the reason I selected these two is that I can find them at a more reasonable price than a couple other models of skis I might otherwise have included.
Appreciate any feedback!
