I'm looking to round out my quiver with a dedicated powder ski. It will primarily be used in the Back Bowls/BSB of Vail on deep days.
A little background:
Primarily ski Vail/Beaver Creek with trips to A-Basin/Breck/Keystone.
Ski 100+ days/year.
Kastle FX84 - 160cm
Nordica Enforcer 100 - 169cm (Daily driver)
Just wondering what other's thoughts are on these particular powder skis:
Volkl One - 166
Volkl Two - 166 - might be overkill for Vail...
Icelantic Nomad 115 - 171 (new for 16/17)
Armada JJ 2.0 - 165/175?
Moment Deathwish - 164
Moment Bibby - 174 - maybe
Liberty Origin 116 - 174
...and possibly Rossignol Super7.
174 is really my max length I think. I used to own a Rossi Sin7 in 172, and it was the longest ski I've ever ridden. With the max length cutoff (for me anyway) being 174ish, a few of the skis friends/shop guys have recommended to me are out - simply because they aren't available in a shorter length - IE Bentchetler, Nordica Patron. Not really interested in Rossi Soul7's. Just wondering what other's thought were regarding the ones mentioned, and if there are any other suggestions. Ski Essentials has a killer deal on the Volkl One's that I might not be able to pass up though...
