whats up first time postin........ im about to move from bmore out to and work at moonlight basin (backside of bigsky, come check us out!). Before i get out there i intend to purchase a new pair of skis and bindings. i think ive narrrowed down my choice to either the 724 pros (170?) or m:ex (165?). Im 5'6", 150 dripping wet. I have been skiing since i was 2 years old, raced two years, and consider myself somewhere around a level eight skier. I intend to ski everyday, and was curious if anybody had any suggestions as to which ski/binding combo i should go for. I know i should demo, and realize that ski preference is relative to the individual, but once i get out there i just want to rip it, and am looking for that one ski quiver...any stories, suggestions tips? Thanks guys

Welcome to EpicSki! And what a great opportunity; the EpicSki Academy was at Big Sky last year, and most of us got to ski Moonlight. Some of us became more intimate than others... Nice choices, and I don't think you can go wrong with either one. What skis are you coming off? What are you doing at Moonlight? What are you looking to get from these skis?

Hey welcome to episki, EJ, and I guess to Montana too soon enough. If I were working at Moonlight, I'd tend toward the wider ski, but I haven't skied either of the skis you mention. I recommend something, but it would probably end up being a Volant, as I have Volants on the brain.

That said there ARE a lot of Machete Sins (which strkies me a a great ski for Moonlight, though I've never been there) coming up for bid on Ebay at reasonable prices.
