All mountain ski [for Colorado, have DPS 112 RPC, Line Sick Day 102?]

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have been searching for a new all mountain ski. I'm in Colorado and have the dps 112 rpc in 186 and love it. I was searching for a ski when there isn't new snow and for touring. I ski steeps and trees mostly. I was looking at the line sick day 102. Any recommendations in the Low 100 range underfoot? I'm 5'8 180.

Cheers

Ha, I'm in the exact opposite spot as you. Waiting to cop the 112 RPC, but dont get enough days in the back country as I am stuck in the Midwest.

 

I'm a big fan of the Moment Belafontes

.

Its a bit larger under foot than the sick days @ 106, but not by much.

Haven't tried the new model, which is supposed to be a little less stiff and more playful, but I've found the 2015/16 model to handle pretty much anything. Its what I use for side country and pretty much anytime I head to real mountain outside the midwest. I dont get to pick my days, so they've seen all sorts of conditions and done well. The rocker will get the tips bouncing a bit at higher speeds on steep crud or straight line chutes, but that's the trade off for being able to float a bit when there's fresh snow.  

 

I like my skis stiff as I'm from a racing background, so it depends on how much you want to work the ski.

I will say, the only detractor for the Moments is their squared tip, which could really mess your leg up if you like to ski fast through tight trees and happen to take one head on.

 

So many options out there these days in the "all mountain" single quiver category that its had to pick.

Good luck.
