Just got back from demo day over the weekend at Blue Mountain (PA). Two that stood out the most that I enjoyed were the Brahma (173) and Latigo (170). The others I demoed was Atomic Theory (177) Icelantic Pilgrim (168) Salomon Threat (171). I only was able to do 3-4 runs on each but I liked the Latigo and Brahma much more than any other skis I've been on. I liked the Latigo a little more than the Brahma.
I don't really know enough about skis to determine technically why I like one more than the other so I was hoping you guys could be of a little help. I am 5'9 male, 150 pounds, 22 yrs old. Skill level is around 6-7 I would say. I'll be skiing on east coast for the time being. Mostly have skied on groomers only, a little bit of powder when it's fresh and not much off trail. I do plan on heading up to Vermont / Canada though. (Not sure of the type of conditions there, never been!) This year I will probably ski around 25 days. Thanks for any help.
