Initial skis I started thinking about are:
- Armada TST
- Line SN 108
- Atomic Automatic 109
- Line SFB
I am open to any and all suggestions as I will try as many as I can this year.
Thanks in advance!
I really like my Atomic Rituals and my Salomon Q98. The Rituals are great charging skis which perform well in all conditions, except moguls aren't their strong point with their wide width. The Q98 have become my go to skis -- nimble, playful, not too wide, but wide for almost all conditions. If the snow gets too deep you can switch to your Praxis. I hear the new Salomon Q Lab is great, too.
If you want fun and nimble for trees and light pow, the Salomon Q98 is a great ski for that. I loved them everywhere except heavier, chunky crud (they get knocked around a little). Very fun in bumps, too. I have read comments on here saying that the Rocker2 100 is even better in soft snow, so you might want at that look too.
I will say, however, that the Q98 is a very different ski than the Prophet 98. Lighter feeling, softer and more forgiving, but given that you said you're after fun instead of power, that might be exactly what you want.
