First timer at Breckenridge--which skis to bring (or rent)?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Need some advice--I've mostly skied in the PNW but going to Breckenridge for the first time on Saturday. I have two pairs of skis--Volkl Mantras and Rossi Zenith Z9ti. My big question is with bumps. The Rossis are fine in bumps, suck in powder, and are slow but good for lots of turns on groomers; the mantras I tend to use on groomers a lot as well, but I can't ski them in the bumps worth a darn, but they are better if there is any powder to be found by a lot. I ski probably 90% frontside with a good mix of groom and some more off the beaten path/find the powder runs.

I can only bring one pair of skis--which ones do I bring? My condo is ski-in/out on Peak 10.

Thanks!

mantras. A pretty decent Colorado all mtn ski

So it is easy enough to avoid serious bump runs, where the Mantras just aren't that fun?

Hi Mojomarc. You will really enjoy your first trip to Breckenridge. The Mantras will work just fine. It is easy to chose your terrain at Breck with plenty of well marked groomers-bump runs and bowls.The forecast is for much more snow so expect soft snow conditions.

Great! Thanks, guys! I'll try to take a few photos, but they'll probably be more terrain shots since I'm not that photogenic when I ski

Mantra - it appears to be the official ski of Colorado
