I kind of asked this question in the "Big Guy" thread but this seems like a better place.
I have a similar question to the OP but my stats are different.
I'm 6'3" and 220lbs. I'm an intermediate skier, only been skiing 3 years but I'm looking to make a big jump in my skiing abilities. I'm a pretty athletic skier, fine on the groomed, improving on bumps and trees. Right now all I own are some frontside technical carving skis (Head isl rd, SS, Hart Phoenix).
I'm looking for some fatter skis that are good in the trees and can handle the occasional bump run like down Gunbarrel. But nothing too fat, so that I still have to use skill to ski the powdery snow in the trees.
I was thinking about the Scott Punisher. I know the Mission is similar but also read that since the Punisher is all sidewall construction, while the Mission is sidewall/cap, the Punisher is a little beefier and considering my weight probably better.
Any other recommendations?
