I'm going to overhaul the quiver between now and next season and would like some help choosing skis.
In this thread I'd like some help with soft snow ski recommendations. I've posted another thread asking about east coast carving skis.
I'm a solid level 7 on hard snow, maybe a 6 in the soft stuff, who's 6' and 185lbs, I'm currently skiing soft snow conditions on a Fischer Watea 94 in 178cm. I like the Watea's but they are a bit lacking in true soft snow conditions and I think I'd like a more soft snow oriented ski. Wateas are a great all around mid fat ski, but I was struggling on them in Utah in a couple of feet of fresh and cut up snow.
Skis on the short list are:
Watea 101 or 114
I'd like a soft snow ski that I don't have to ski 100 miles an hour on to get it to respond and that will still be ok on harder snow. Don't really want a powder only wide ski, rather something in the 100-110 range that is fairly forgiving.
Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated! I won't get to demo any of these types of skis out here so I'll be buying blind most likely.
