Lightweight Fat Powder ski with tips like K2 Coombacks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Im getting older and Teleskiing is taking it's toll. I have a pair of K2 Coombacks that I tele in powder with and they are such a great ski and are looking for an Alpine set up but for powder only.

I've tried the K2 Side Stash (139/108/127) but found the tips not to like rise in pow like the Coombacks. Thinking of K2 Pontoon, Shreditor 120 or Icelandic Gypsy. Anyone got any suggestions?

The 15-16 Blizzard Bodacious (118) or Spur (125). The metal is gone in the new Bodacious, it's lighter, and will be much more accessible to a broader range of skiers. I think a Dynastar Cham 117 would be pretty darn nice as well.

Perhaps the K2 Coomback 114?

They are very similar to the Sidestash, just got a different flex due to no metal. Since I already the 104 Coombacks and the Sidestash, I was looking for a floaty powder ski.. But thanks for suggestion

And maybe some of the Black a diamond offerings if 'light' is the deal.

Resort/pow only? Faction Candide 3.0 or 4.0 are super light and surfy.

I have settled on a the Line Mr Pollards Opus with the Rosignol Axle 3 binding.

Having them mounted at the Eric Pollard suggested point.

 

Hopefully I enjoy them
