B1 or B2? (or smth else)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am looking for some advice on a second pair of skis.
My main pair is Atomic 10:EX in 167 cm, which is great everywhere except for big icy bumps or tight trees, so I am looking to add another pair for bumps/hardpack conditions. I demo'd Rossi B1 at Tahoe and it was great in bumps (it was this past weekend, so it was hardpack with icy patches).I did not have a chance to demo B2, so wondering if I should get B2 instead of B1 - how does it ski in bumps? Is it noticably worse there than B1? Also, any other skis similar to Rossis but a bit wider and a tiny bit stiffer? I felt B1 would be too soft for anything except for moguls...

I am not heavyweight, 5'5" and weigh 124 lbs, ski at Tahoe (mostly Kirkwood)

Thanks a lot!

For bumps and hard pack in Tahoe, I think maybe a midfat with a waist in the 70 - 80 range? Can you demo? If so maybe try the B2, Volkl 724 EXP, Head IM 75, Dynastar Legend 4800.

B1 i s fun in bumps...i bet the 4800 would rock too. any version of the Völkl 724 EXT would be a great choice, too. the rials ski nice in the bumps. super round feeling to the ski!

icy bumps and wide skis generally don't mix all that well.

sorry. want to talk about wider skis?
