More out of curiosity but if you were looking for soft snow or pow ski that would be good in a variety of terrain, bumps, trees, steeps,etc. No gromed other than getting around the mountains (Steamboat). Too much time to kill before the season and I was wondering if I can get myself into trouble with a new or leftover pair????? Remember, SB doesn't have huge open bowls. Last question, will any of these offer any substantial advantage over my Mojo90's?

Is the M90 the widest ski that you have and what length is it? If you got a wider pair, when would you use the Mojos? What length are you thinnin' about for this one?

Not really.

There is a small increase in soft snow performance for the goat and the Prophet 100 with a noticeable drop in quickness and versatility on hard surfaces. If you want to have soft snow + bump performance you really should stay in the high 80's to very low 90's, ditch the 'bump' qualifier and you will see a gain by going wider, otherwise stick with what you've got, it's a great ski.

That's the widestr, its in a 176. Length? for tree versitility (I'm not an expert in the trees) I would think more about 178-180. I really like the Mojo's but....

Thanks, you posted while I was responding to Jim. I want the bump aspect for sure. This is what happens in the off-season! I am a junkie......

i was just noticing the Watea 94, now that is an interesting ski....

WR pretty much covered my feelings as well. I see little need to have a 90mm twin and a 100 something twin. I'd view the Bridge as a replacement for what you have and the others as rather specialized but mostly unnecessary supplements.

Now........if you were to rebuild from the ground up............welllll.........

Jim, these would be a replacement (possibly) I have the im78's for all other. Build away....

It's all good I think we're both afflicted with the same disease You seem to have a healthy avoidance of quiver overlap. Me, on the other hand.....

I wouldn't want to be viewed as excessive.... What I am really trying to get to is two skis, one for groomed and soft days (IM78) and the other just for loose snow, bumps, trees and pow. I have 90's, 124-89-118 but was thinking a 128ish tip, 92-96 waist and a 112-115 tail may be a bit better.

your mojos are a great ski for some place like steamboat, I dont see the need for a replacement.

What do you mojos lack and what do you want more of?

with that said if you think a bigger ski is in your future then read further.

I am really biased towards the gotamas,

I truly think its best off-trail softsnow ski created for 95 percent of people out there. IN a 183cm size it should do alot of thing well for you. They will even ski bumps ok if you willing to put some effort out.

There are better powder ski, there are better hard snow skis, but none with a performance envelope as wide as volkl classic powder ski.

If I were to have 2 skis for the west, one would be a mid 80's non twin with good groomer capability. The other would be a 100 something (give or take a little) with very good soft snow capability this one might be a twin, might not, it doesn't matter much. What I have in those slots this year are the Mythic Rider in 178 and the Got in a 183 (and my Sugar Daddy 183's). There are plenty of good options for both slots that I'd be happy with.

What you have approximates this well enough so there's not a lot of need.
The Bridge is a direct enough replacement for what you have that it won't gain you any epihanies. If you were to toss the Mojo's then you might consider one of the wider skis and deal with the aformentioned sacrifice in manuverability. The Got is not a super agressive ski. I wouldn't call it quick, but it's very easy. Of course quick is relative to the width and I doubt that I'd describe anything in the 105 range as quick. The Got won't give you any huge advantages until the snow gets reasonably deep.

OK, I can't believe I'm saying this (so don't quote me) but I'll keep the mojo90's and demo some stuff. I am such a sucker for pre-season deals though..... thanks:
