So I was just out in SLC for a few days and I demoed the Rossi Experience 88 in 180. The first day conditions were a little better and I loved it carving/cruising down the blues, and it seemed to handle well on the few steeper blacks I did as well. The other days were sloppy spring conditions, and I felt it handled the slop better than the narrower skis I usually ski.
About me: I’m advanced-intermediate, I’d say a Level 7 skier. This year I skied about 10 days in the Midwest (Perfect North Slopes) and 3 full days in Utah, hope to and more out west/up east days in the future. I ski mostly groomers, and no bumps, but definitely mix in off-piste stuff when I head to a larger mountain.
I think I’d ultimately like something with some all mountain ability, but perhaps not as wide as the 88. I’m definitely considering the Experience 84, and I’m interested in the Latigo, but wasn’t able to demo it. So how would the narrower wasted Latigo, or something like the Kästle FX84 compare? And what are the differences in fellow ~88s Brahma and Kendo, would they be too much?
