I’m 35 years old, have been skiing since I was a teenage but didn’t get a chance to ski during my 20’s. After moving to Florida and picking up surfing I forgot how much I loved skiing and fell back in love with the sport. This season I will ski about 20 days, but the first of April I’m buying a Cali4nia season pass for 2016/17, so will get to ski much more often. I’m a level 7 skier and live in California, LA and ski Mammoth, Snow Summit and Big Bear mostly. I am 6’2” 195lbs, an adrenaline junkie and love to challenge myself.
Last year skied only about 6 days, nothing like this season or next. Found that I picked it right back up and could hit the blacks just like my youth. I make sure to take a lesson or two ever season to improve my skills. I’m taking an advanced/expert lesson on Monday at Mammoth as I'm always looking to improve. With being out west now and getting lots of powder this year I am skiing more and more off groomers and loving it.
I’m looking for a second wider powder ski for Mammoth to add to my 2016 Nordica NRGY 90 185.
I have narrowed it down to the Rossignol Super 7 188 or Rossignol Soul 7 188. With my NRGY 90’s I was thinking the Super 7 that is 116 might be a better fit for me in the powder and trees over the Soul 7 106. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
I'm hoping to demo both and getting custom fitted boots at Footloose on Sunday.
Thanks for your help!
