Ski advice for Steeps Camp at Jackson next week

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'll be attending the PSIA Steeps Camp at Jackson next Thursday and Friday.  Weather is supposed to be dry and warm starting this Sunday so they'll have had no new snow and aren't supposed to get any while I'm there.  I seem to be cursed in the powder department lately.  I've never skied Jackson and can't wait.  I'm adding Wednesday and Saturday as ski days on either end of the clinic.

 

Which ski should I bring?  Choices are  new Nordica Enforcer 185 with AT setup, Nordica NRG 90 in a 177, Nordica Steadfast in a 186. My Nordica Girish is too big a ski for no new snow.  I'm only taking 1 pair.  I'm leaning to the Enforcer despite the lack of new snow because I love the light weight with the AT setup and I've skied them in old snow conditions and they were great.  Other advice?

The Steeps camp is only 2 days?  PSIA, and you're asking us punters?

 

I skied JHMR last Sunday, and everything was pretty soft.  Usually the Steep camp instructors can find you some powder no matter what.  If you're going to be jumping into some tight chutes go with what you can control the best.

Thanks, and yes, the PSIA camp is only two days.  The primary reason I ask is I've never skied Jackson and have no idea what to expect snow wise after 5ish days of no new snow.

@tetonpwdrjunkie paging - I've seen you on Nordica's before.

I'd use the Steadfasts, but I'm still partial to them after all these years.
