All Mountain Ski Recommendation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm a 5ft 11in 175lbs advanced/expert skier. Ski primarily out West.

 

I own a pair 115cm underfoot powder skis that I use whenever snow is deeper than 8 inches.  Looking for something that can handle all but the deepest conditions.  I have a strong bias towards short radius turns and spend a fair amount of time in the bumps.  Prefer a ski with a more lively ride than a damper feel.  Any thoughts on models to demo?

Welcome. If you like lively, and spend time in bumps, I'd look at skis made by Blizzard, Atomic, or Fischer, in the mid 80's to mid 90's range. Several to choose from, all nicely designed. Short radius - depending on what that means to you - is a bit more challenging, since that bit seems to be owned by Head, which are not especially lively nor the first choices I'd make for bumps. And short radii are not typically found in skis wide enough to be for "all but the deepest." But if you can live with <20 m, a lot of choices. Keep in mind that as we put skis over on their edges and bend them, the radius gets significantly smaller...

Thanks for the thoughts.  I've had a couple people recommend Fischer Ranger TI 88.  Any experience with them?
