What skis for me (bigger guy, advanced level)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
  Well, if this gives you a better idea, check out my review of the Head Mojo 90s from a few years ago:


I am 6'1" 210lbs.  I can ski anything.  I will be keeping my head mojos (and wishing they were not as wide) for the more packed days, and for the rocky days.  When I can't find powder, I like mougles to keep me interested.  Im not much of a jibber, but I will go in the half pipe occasionally and hit a rail or a box every once in a while.  I love steep open powder (Aspen Highlands Bowl is probably my all time favorite.)  

At the same time, my home mountain right now is Durango Mountain Resort, which has incosistant snow, and where the powder is, the trees are, so I need to be able to turn!  Im not worried too much about this, however because I have taken my Atomic Powder Plusses which are 180cm and 115 underfoot with a straight edge cut, and kept up with my speedy ski buddies just fine through the powdery trees!  

Anyhow, I kind of want a do everything ski but oriented in the powdery steeps.  I want something stiffer then my Mojo 90s, and definatly wider.  I am considering:

09 Line Blend
09 Liberty Helix
08 Head Supermojo 103
09 Atomic Pimp
09Vokl Gotama

other suggestions (probably can't spend more then $500, if that..)

 I personally love my High Society FRs. They are twin tips perform great in the bowls at breck as well as being pretty reliable on the groomers. They do tend to not hold their edge super tight on on real hard stuff but it's possible that's because of my tunning skills rather than the skis. They are 90mm underfoot at 179 but mine are two seasons old and I think that the newer ones are a few mm wider. They are an over all great ski though

 I had those, actually, back when they had the black and smoke graphics, and before that with the diamond plating graphics (they warrentied me a new pair after the diamond plated ones delamed)  I liked them, but I think I want more sidcut, and while I would love to support a small company (especially a local one) they were clearly still having durability issues when I got mine.  Maybe that is the worng impression and they have worked out the kinks...

I would get the 187cm= 136, 104, 126.  not bad deminsions, but I wish the tip and tail were wider..
