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.
