I know someone getting rid of a pair of these skis in a 174cm length. Does anyone have experience with these? They seem to be a sidecut and turn radius that would suggest decent all-mountain eastern application. What level, weight and aggressiveness of skier are these best suited for? Thanks for the help!
2007 Stockli Stormrider AT
My 18 year old son has used a pair (166cm) for the last two seasons. He's 6', 135lbs and a pretty aggressive level 7(?) at this time. He was a few inches shorter when we got them. He skis all Eastern terrain including high speed groomers, bumps, glades, terrain parks, but heavy into bumps at this point. He likes them a lot and has progressed much on them skill-wise. Believe they are meant to be a jack of all trades, master of none and were positioned at the bottom of the Stockli line, but still a very well crafted ski. I've skied them a few times, decent all mtn Eastern application is a good way to describe them. Think their width underfoot is around 76. When he's done with them I might steal as a back-up to my beaten-up RX8s. 174cm sounds great, esp if you're a little heavier than my son.
Marker titanium 1200.
I could add that the few times I skied them they seemed slightly stiffer than my 175cm RX8s, so 174 should be a fairly manly ski. My son really rips groomers with his, much faster than I, so I think they have a fairly high speed limit too. Just to be sure, here's the ski I'm talking about:

slight revision here, FWIW. The ski is positioned at the bottom of the Stormrider model series, not the Stockli line in general, as they make a whole range of skis below the Stormrider. The AT is basically a de-tuned XL, wood core replaced with foam core. They tend to sell for less for that reason. I ski the XL, so ask about that if you have questions in general, but haven't skied the AT.
I would guess they are a master of firm snow and groomers, not bad in bumps.
