I'm an advanced East Coaster heading to Park City for the week of March 19-26…looking forward to a week of fun Spring conditions, which I enjoy. I usually ski first chair to last when I get the chance to travel. As usual I'm fussing over what skis to bring along.
On past Spring trips I've enjoyed skiing on the Head Rock & Roll and Kastle FX94. I'm 5'11, 200+…both of these have been fun on soft bumps and pretty good on groomed runs, which I tend to ski aggresively. I like to ski bowls when conditions are good. I'm not much of a tree skier.
I'm trying to decide this year between a 178cm MX88 and a 178cm BMX98. I know the MX88 well and love it for hard snow, but have not used it in Spring conditions. I own the BMX98 but have not skied it yet at all, and don't know how it skis (bought it based on Kastle reputation/great end of season deal). I'm worried that the MX88 might not be the best choice for slushy afternoons, and BMX98 might be a bad choice for frozen morning conditions.
I don't have a slope-side condo, so I'm usually just able to bring 1 pair. Any thoughts on either of these for skis for Spring conditions?
