Best New England Tree Skiing Ski

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hey Peeps.  I am looking for the perfect ski for tight trees at Cannon Mt.  Ex freestyle coach that is looking for the most recent reviews of a ski that can pivot on a dime for this 5'7 135 gal that has a quiver of skis, so this one can be super dialed in to just the NE woods. Thanks!

You'll get a lot of opinions on this but:

1. Firm snow: blizzard bushwacker or dynastar distorter or K2 Shreditor 92

2. Softish snow: Nordica soul rider or dynastar slicer or k2 shreditor 102

3. Deeper soft snow: nordica patron

Thanks Liam! I used to work at a ski shop for fun and I sold all of those skis to guys.  I am light and slim and the bushwackers, for instance were heavy and a bit more ski than I can push around.  Any gal rippers out there with suggestions, or guys with gal rippers?  What are they on in the woods?

I use the Soul Riders in the trees at Killington. Fun ski that pivots on a dime . Not an expensive ski . Bought mine used at a great price.

Not a gal,  but I cant see how you would go wrong the these skis.

I'm a hair shorter than you, and about 5 pounds heavier (though male) - and I love the Patrons in deeper snow (only tested in Steamboat though), my daily go-to in a middle width is the Line sick-day 95 (mine are from ~2013/14 season, with the tree-house graphic) .  Love it in trees, both east and west, they're light, nimble, and float me well.  The thing I've liked the most about them is they have a flex pattern that matches my height/weight really well.

All depends on the trees. Soul 7, Sin, Soul RIder, or if you can find a clean used example, Blizzard's The One. IMO above 100 is getting wide for tight trees, over 110 is too much of a good thing. If you ski wider spaced trees and glades, then a Patron would be fine.

Nordica La Nina would be a good one for you. Volkl One W can be had very cheap and looks like a good option.
