I'm from the East Coast but ski more than half of my 25 days each year on the West Coast (mostly Tahoe and Utah). I'm 6'4"/205# level 8/9 skier and I currently only ski a 184 Mythic Rider. I just found out I will be moving further up the coast so I want to add a dedicated East Coast ski to the quiver.
These will be used almost exclusively on trail and will definitely see some bumps. If there is any kind of fresh/chopped up snow I will be skiing the Mythic Riders. I realize I am going at two polar things here, a great ice carver and also soft enough for the bumps. I have been looking at the Dynastar Contact 4x4 and the Head Supershape Magnums in a 178/177 length. Are there any other skis I should be considering along with these? The 4x4's are still too expensive and the SS Magnums are very hard to find.
Thanks in advance for the help.
