type of skis to get [to teach at Deer Valley]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi. I am working this years ski season in Deer Valley as a ski instructor. So far I have bought all of the equipment that I need for the season including skis. The skis I bought are Rosignal Experience 80 skis. I have been searching around trying to find out what else people reconmend getting. I had seen that some people seem to have alpine and powder skis. I was trying to find out if I should get a pair of powder ski too to have as well as alpine skis or if just having alpine skis is fine. 

 

Thank you

Skiing that much in Utah and having something wider for deeper snow is a good idea.  Hard to advise you on what to buy without knowing more about you, but when it snows you're going to want something bigger underfoot - or at least I would!

As an intermediate skier teaching at Deer Valley, the Rossi 80 will be all that you need for work. Except for clinics, my bet is that you're pretty much going to be spending all your time on Wide West. If you are working full time, on the rare occasion that you will not be working and it will be a powder day, I recommend that you rent wider skis from DV or hit the Rossi yurt up at Empire base for free demos. Try different models and see for yourself. Last year I worked full time and had the opportunity to take a few lessons into deeper snow (over 2 foot). My "powder" skis were 82cm wide. I never had any problems, but I started skiing in powder 45 years ago and your amount of floatation may vary.
