Help me pick out a ski

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am from the Boston area but am looking to head out to the rockys for a month or 2 this year. my favorite ski condition is powder just on the verge of becoming bump esp on steep tertian. I don’t know if any of you are familiar with Killington, but there is this off the beaten path trial called the jug/jug handle. On days after it snows and everything else is skied off you can find me ridding the one way chairlift and skiing that trail over and over

What i am looking for is a ski that will help me to enjoy my ideal snow condition wile at the same time allow me to have a pleasant time on the groomed stuff and is not too long to spoil the glades

any suggestions?

What are you skiing on now? Are you looking for skis only or boots too?

Solomon axendo 9 size 207 i think (they were stolen at the end of the 2004 season) last season I skied on a few different skis. Only got out a hand full of times so i just never had the time or reason to buy. I tried a pair of 170 and loved how the short ski felt the weight of the ski was also nice, my Solomon weighed a ton. This year i have the time and am looking forward to an abundance of snow.

i was going to hold off on the boots for now

PS> im 185 weight and will likely drop a few pounds

Which 170s did you try?

Perhaps a pair of Dynastar 8000s or 8800s, given the limited information we have. Light, lively, wide, and floaty--yet carve reasonably well on-piste (not sure about hardpack, tho).
