I am thinking I need a new set of skis, or maybe just an addition to the one pair in the quiver now. I am planning 3 big trips out west this year and would like to get the most out of them with some more versatile skis.
Here are the stats:
-Live in Minnesota (think ice)
-Raced in High School (More ice)
- 5-9" 210
- 27 years old
- plan to ski less than 5 times here in Minnesota and 3 trips out to Colorado/Montana.
- Volkl Supersport all-stars 182
- Nordica Supercharger blower
- I ski everything, bowls, bump, trees, carving down cruisers.
I am looking for some skis (hopefully volkls) that would complement my current Supersports. The Supersports are great for flying down the hill ripping huge turns with your hair on fire but when I take them through crud or any powder, just not the right fit. I feel like I am getting thrown around and working too hard. I think I need something wider under-foot and less carving orientated. Been thinking about either an used AC50 or Grizzly (more likely AC50 cause those Grizzlies = $$$) I have also looked at the freeskier series and something like the Mantra, but I don't think I find enough powder usually to really take advantage of these?
What would you guys suggest?
