Any recommendations for a good all mountain ski for a good intermediate skier?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I moved out west after being on the east coast where I loved my Fischer RX 6 skis.  I still have those skis, but I believe they're more fitting for east coast.

 

Now that I'm going to ski in Colorado and California I'd like a new ski.  What would you advise?

 

I'm a pretty good intermediate skier, comfortable with quick short radius turns.  I'm new to moguls but can handle one or two, LOL.

 

Any suggestions for an all mountain type ski after loving my Fischer RX 6 would be greatly appreciated.  Also, please recommend bindings to go with them.  

 

thanks!

 

I noticed five questions to answer in order to get better results.  Here goes...

 

  1. Where in the world are you skiing?  Colorado, California.

  2. What kinds of terrain do you prefer (groomed runs, moguls, race course, park'n'pipe, trees, steeps, backcountry/sidecountry)   Groomed, some moguls, some steeps.

  3. How many days a year do you ski? 5 to 10

  4. How advanced are you as a skier?  I'm comfortable calling myself a "good intermediate."

  5. What's your height and weight?  6 ft 2, 220 lbs.

I just bought 2016 Blizzard Brahma skis, 180, with Marker Griffon bindings, based on reviews online.

Lots of great info online.

I second that suggestion.  At 220lbs, you are perfect for that ski.   Also, Head Monster 88 would be a nice choice.

I already discussed one of the less popular in U.S. Market but hidden ski-gems - the stand-alone unique ski technology - Elan Amphibio - definitely for progressing advanced intermediates up to even experts will enjoy for spending less. Demo this brand-model and you will never be sorry that you check them
