WTB: cheap, surfy, easy pow/soft snow ski

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm a level 8 eastern skier, strong on the carve...not so strong in off-piste powder and trees.  I'm looking for a DEAL on some easy, surfy, soft-snow skis for my trips out west.  I have a pair of all-mountain 95-waist skis for most days (which I really like), but they're more chargers than floaters.  At Powder Mt or Alta I've come across deep or tight places where I wanted more float, ease, and quickness to help me compensate for my carve-oriented technique.  So...recommendations?  I've thought about Rossi Super 7 or Soul 7, Nordica Patron or El Capo, or ????  There are deals on Super 7 and maybe El Capo, not so much on Soul or Patron. Others? 

 

These would have to be cheap (they'll be special-use items for me) and lean towards the surfy, floaty, playful end of the spectrum.  I'll ski them at Pow Mt, Alta, Snowbasin and maybe in trees here in the east if we ever get snow again.

Thoughts/suggestions?

Talk to skiessentials about their Volkl two deal?

Check eBay for whatever you are looking for. Lots of Rossi Souls and Supers there, and cheap.

JW, thanks.  I already found a number of Supers -- not so many cheap Soul's.  
I guess I'm also looking for guidance: of those two, which makes more sense?
Of Patron/El Capo, which?  

Or is there another (like Volk 2) that would be even better?

I have 2014 Atomic Automatics 117 with Salomon STH2 WTR 13 for sale for 300 Euro. Too bad shipping to the US is a bit of a pain in the *ss, otherwise they could be what you're looking for.

TCH, I only know Rossi. Of the Soul and the Super, I would (and did) go with the Super. The model with the air tip. That is the best powder ski of the 2, and that is what you are looking for. I owned the Soul and found it wasn't an all mountain ski and so sold them and bought Supers from an Epic member. I am very happy with them. All the reviews are overwhelmingly positive, you can't go wrong with them. The E100 is my all mountian ski now. Between the 2 there is nothing they can't handle while putting a grin on my face.

Good luck!
