Take the ski that gives you the most confidence in attacking anything!  Back in the "day" we used one ski to do everything, and it was our "bullet proof" ski.  In the end, it's not the ski, it's what you feel the best on.  Don't let other people tell you what to ski based on the name, rather, you know what's best for you to have fun and ski!

I'm similar H/W as you, and have previously owned MX88, MX78, and have had FX94 for 2 seasons now.

... and I'll be Alberta-bound at the end of January too

I know what you mean about the MX88  WOW'ing on groomers, but a bit much work in difficult conditions ( my lack of skill, and 178 probably too much ski for our H/W )


I'm going take my FX94 with me as it is a great do-all ski, and always puts smile on my face.

Though I am throwing it to the curbside in favour of a 2 ski quiver ->  76-83 and a 105-108

(  I really want to find that perfect 1-ski, a 105-108, to take on trips out West or Europe  )


So you want an MX88 but with a bit more versatility -> How about the Elan 88xti ?

It has always been well-reviewed at Epic since it came out.


Here are Dawgcatching's (aka Scott ) recent review on the current 88xti:



And Scott's other 95-105 roundup:

The monster 88 has kastle mx88 feel minus a tiny bit of grip but more forgiving with a hint of rocker on both ends
