I'm trying to put this package together for ~$700, with local friends that own a shop providing the bindings and mount unless I opt for something like the Titan Atlas which I don't think I can get for $700 anyway.
In no particular order, the following skis are what I have in mind for daily use for Western mountain tree skiing, steep bump runs (not quick zipperline), soft groomers and some powder. I want the ski to really shine in both the trees and on soft groomers but also be considered "pretty good" in the bumps.
What three work best? Anything better for the price that hasn't been mentioned below?
2010 K2 Extreme – 179
2009 Fischer Watea 84 – 176 or 184
2009 Dynastar Big Trouble – 176 or 186
2010 Line Prophet Flite – 179
2009 Head Mojo 94 – 180

Anyone tuned in that with a shop that has these? I'd certainly consider buying from you. I'm buying this ski without trying them first so I'm relying on reviews and feedback. I like the sound of the Mojo 94 and like the idea of the Prophet Flite. I can't find any data on the Flite however.
A couple of the skis listed are at either Evogear or O2 Gearshop. Are these places legit?
