Hey, looking for some advice. I'm trying to update my quiver for next season. I love both my hardpack skis and my all-mountain skis, but I've been meaning to upgrade my powder skis for a while now. I currently have a pair of 2012 Line Mr. Pollards Opus skis, but they're in rough shape, and not as fitting to my ski style as I'd like. I've mainly been looking at the following,
Blizzard Gunsmoke 114
Blizzard Bodacious 118
Atomic Automatic 117
K2 Pinnacle 118's
Rossingnol Super 7's
I'm 6'2 and 185 Pounds. My style is surfy and aggressive, probably would be placed in the freeride "category". I really appreciate skis that have a low swing weight and are very playful. My home mountain is Jackson Hole/Big Sky, but I'm moving over to Seattle this summer, so I'm assuming my new mountain will be Whistler or the resorts scattered around the PNW/Cascades.
I'm looking for a powder ski that can obviously float, is stiff enough to not get waffled in the crud, but is also nimble and won't get sluggish in the heavier Coastal snow. I ski predominantly backcountry/sidecountry, and most of my time is spent in glades or on steeps/bowls. I'd appreciate a ski that isn't too sluggish on the groomers, my knees can't roll-over as well as they could.
Any opinions on the skis above, or any suggestions for other Skis I haven't listed? Thanks.
P.S, what skis would handle the wetter cascade snow the best? Don't have much experience with that kind of snow.
