Powder ski recommendation

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So far all I've got is: a pair of Sanouks, some Head m103's, another pair of Sanouks, a pair of Explosivs, a pair of ARV's and a pair of Praxis Powders. What powder ski would you guys recommend? - I know there's a big hole in my quiver somewhere. I mean - I don't have a ski with a fin yet. Should I go for the fin? I'd do a search or maybe look at one of the dozen or so other powder ski threads on the first page, but that's lotsa work. Please help me out - winter's only three months away!

PS - this ski's also gotta work for a 1st descent of the Killer Death Fang Coulior on Mt. Everest.

edit: almost forgot my stats!: late 30's, bi-curious male, Capricorn.

I recommend another pair of Sanouks, just for good measure.

I did see that once....some kid decided to try the back side of Bachelor in deep snow on snowblades. When I found him he was soaked, a bit punch drunk and getting pretty good at the slde--plant the head -wallow out technique.

At Big Sky in the mid 90's there was a whole group of snowlerblade big mountain powder chargers. Wonder whatever happened to those guys.

Theses are homoflexible skis.

Kastle MX 98 or MX 108. Vertical laminated wood/ metal, square sidewalls, hand made by Kastle techs in Head's race dept.

You're a traditionalist. Kastle is a traditional brand, tons of history. Chris Davenport skis 'em (He skis 14ers, he's an attractive man, I'm not sure how he feels about D&D). Hugo Harrison skis 'em. Jer should ski 'em also.

Either Kastle will fill the gap between the Sanouk and the iM103, the sanouk is a ripping pow ski that is noodly, the iM103 is a plank that acts like a submarine but slays 'variable' snow... like avy debris. The Kastle will be an improvement over the Explosiv, you'll like it. I promise.

Powder Skis

Last year when JAPAN got over 50 feet of snow on the Northern part they resurrected the NISHIZAWA Ski. Go for it. Awesome powder ski and also a great Slalom race ski - go figure.

On a serious note, IIRC, those were the prior art over which the Spatula patent application was rejected.
