OK, I have to jump in here and find out about the dump truck. After a couple of nightcaps, dump trucks take on a certain gravitas.

Also have to second Spindrift's thesis. Having spent four pleasant years in Michigan, I can verify that it has terrain parks, and if you lack 3000 ft of vert, ot discernable powder, there's something to be said for landing switch. So I'll vote for a serious twin tip (Karmas don't count cuz most of us use them as all-mountain) that'll encourage you to try some tricks. Some great deals on Line right now if you want fat, and you might think about a Fischer Habit or a Dynastar Trouble Maker in a mid-160's. All can be had for $300 or less right now...

I'd stay and chat about the dump truck, but I have to go deliver some beach sand and sea wall stone to a vacation cottage. Busy week for me ya know


I really thought I had a target ski purchase in mind, but I've gotten so many solid ideas, I'm actually doing some research and considering other possibilities.

I do think a twin is a good way to go so that I can continue to improve my play skills and get better at skiing backwards. I can and do ski backwards, but not like some I've seen.
Wow, there are some amazing skiers out there!

Finally, trekchick... finally.

you live in michigan... hmmm

nordica hellcat. Here's Sierrajim's; http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=55029

I have it's narrower counter-part, the Jet fuel. It carves like mad. And I severly wish I had the hellcat. I can't believe how well my nordies arc cord for an 86 waist. I drag hip at 40 mph and not a flake leaves the ground...

doo it. Nordica is severly under-appreciated.

Eh.........He'll get used to it!

With Huge close outs on 07 skis, and 08's ready to hit the floor, I've got my juices flowing again.

I totally appreciate Nordica!
I have had the Nordica Nitrous, and really enjoyed it. My husband has adopted it for his quiver for the upcoming season.
I demo'd the Afterburner...........Twice
I have no doubt that I'd love the hellcat.

What I'm really looking for is a Twin to replace my Karma. I really don't know how much I'll want to ski it since it really took some hits at the end of the season. I am not opposed to something wider or unconventional .............goodness knows, the EpicSki influence is already seen in my quiver and will like have more influence in the future.

I definitely want to try the Volkl Bridge.
The aura has my interest Piqued, as it did when I started this thread.
I've been pleasantly surprised by the Elan's I've tried and that is why the 888 is on the top of my demo list.

Then Splitter showed me this..........
Outside the box for me for sure, and has been on my mind more than once since he linked it.

Please Confuse me more if you can.
I love looking at and considering stuff outside the box!

They're 177s, too small for me, probably too big for you, but that's what I'd say about most of your quiver and you seem to like big skis. They ski smaller than the 177 Karmas they replaced.

Shoot me a pm with details
Cost, bindings they've been drilled for, and where the placement is, such as that.
I actually skied a 177 karma and almost got that instead of the 169. Have always wondered if I'd liked it better.

Trek,
With fats (IMO) long is good. I ski a 184 and love it.

I was hoping Epic could tell me how stiff those are:
I'm only 125 lbs now, maybe I need to go smaller and wimpier

How do I measure that? They're stiffer than Pocket Rockets and softer than Race Stock Omeglass 64s. I'll have to go down and check 'em out and PM ya.

2 or 3 times? You actually don't know?

I would assume that anything less than 5 would be pretty easy to count.
