Ski Suggestion

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello Folks,

I am 22 year old Skier , with 6 years of skiing experience, my level is around 6-7/10.

I have Atomic Sx:9 Puls ti for 3 years now , and I feel that they do not match to my skiing level anymore, i need something more stable at high speeds. additionaly, these skis are very bad for off piste , almost impossible to ski there. and its very boring to ski on piste all the day long ( i love it though).

I would be happy if you could advise a one quiver ski for both on piste and off piste skiing. 

Thanks in advance.

 I ski in Caucasus mountains, Eastern Europe, Gudauri http://www.epicski.com/forum/thread/60672/pictures-of-your-mountains/0


You can see pictures up in here , there are very long ( 8 km) and wide paths. from 2,000 to 3,300 meters above the sea level.

Without more information about height, weight, aggressiveness, terrain preferences, (% of the time that you ski in snow over ~~10 cm. deep) etc. it is tough to be very definitive.

Two 2010 models that can cover a wide range of abilities and terrain choices are the Nordica Nitrous CA and the Nordica Jet Fuel CA. The Nitrous is wider than what you currently have and the Jet Fuel is the same layup and construction as the Nitrous but is 6mm wider yet.

There literally dozens of skis that could work very well for you.

 190 cm and 77 kg , I am not VERY but quite aggressive skier, and would spend like 60 % on piste and rest on off piste.

Was looking now at Atomic Nomad series, What about them?

I don't know much about Atomics, since my regular shop and home resort shop don't carry them.

If you really want one ski that does both on-piste and off-piste pretty well, my best recommendation would be a Head Monster 78.  This seems to have become the "Peak 78" for the 2009-2010 season.  The "Peak 75" looks like a 75mm version, which might be slightly more biased for on-piste.

Almost every company makes some sort of 50/50 "all-mountain" ski, though.
