All mountain skis

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

 I am looking for an all mountain ski. I want something that can turn quick at moderate to high speeds,Responds well to aggressive skiing and has no or high speed limit and yet and still handle 1inch-1 foot of powder.I would like a ski with at least 80 mm underfoot.

 

 

about me: Im 5'4. weigh about 110 pounds and on a scale from 1-10 were 1 is novice and 10 is an expert I would say Im around a 6 and a half. I also ski race.

I was pretty impressed with the Dynastar Mythic.

I am very partial these days to Moment so my bias leans that direction, but I will list a few others that I have skied and liked. All have traditional camber.

 

Moment Tahoe: 96 waist and stiff

Moment Reno Freebird: 85 waist mod stiff

Black Diamond Havoc: 88 waist and stiff

Movement Thunder: 87 waist and stiff

 does the thunder really need to be ski'd super faster to come alive.  The movement website makes it look like it needs to be doing 40 mph just to turn...

And if you find it, let us know and I can get rid of several skis from my quiver.

Not as stiff as it appears. Nice progressive flex, easy turn initiation, and quite stiff under the foot.

They will all ski fine on groomers. As far as moguls go, I would narrow down to the Reno Freebird, Havoc, and Thunder.
