What three pair for the optimal three pair quiver

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
OK..what three pair of skis you would select for a three pair ski quiver. No excuses, no qualifications, I don't care east/west.

All I want to see in an answer is;


No "Ifs" "ands" "or" "buts". What would you use if you could have (just) three pair for the 06/07 season and I don't care why.

Well for the 06/07 season my 3 ski quiver was:

Stockli Stormrider XL 174 - hard snow and skiing w/ kids on groomers.
Volkl Mantra 191 - everything between
Volkl Sanouk 193 - Powder

and for 07/08 it is the same.

(at least it is until I walk into a shop a see 197 Katana for sale.)

Stockli Rotor 76 169cm
Stockli Stormrider XXL 178cm
Stockli DP Pro 193cm

But I am seriously considering the Lib Tech POW in 185cm or Kingswood FAT in 185cm - I couldn't help myself there is just too much choice and FAT is where is its at for heli/ cat ski deep pow days.

My 3 skis quiver :
Dynastar Skicross 10 186cm (hard snow, speed)
Scott Aztec Pro 186 cm (Do it all, cruising)
Salomon Sandstorm 187 cm (Do it all, deeper)

Not ideal. But close enough and in my price range...
May change with good opportunities.

Hmm, NOW it's

Just think I need something a bit bigger and a few MM longer. Softish tip...

Technically I have a 5-ski quiver, but the core 3 in reality will be:

181 Blizzard Titan 9
180 AK King Salmon
185 Volant Spatula

If we are talking fantasy 3-ski quivers, couldn't begin to tell you as I'd really want to demo everything under the sun in order to come up with that list!

179cm K2 Public Enemy, Look zr18
186cm Head im88, Salomon s916 w/lift
190cm Atomic Big Daddy, Rossignol 180 Pro

This was my main 3-ski setup last year, for Stowe and Killington. It worked very well.

It's silly, or maybe misleading, to list a size without more info.

I'm 6', 200#, very good skier, medium energy level, and I usually prefer the ski size one under the longest offered.

#1--Head i.SuperShape, 170 cm for me.
#2--Head Monster iM 78, 177 cm for me.
#3--Head Mojo 90, 186cm for me on the cat ski trips in B.C.

If I didn't have the SuperShapes, I'd get the new Xenon 7.0. Head is doing somethings very right with skis.

quite the exotic triad you have (AK, Birdos, Praxis)!
