If so, how do they compare?
Similar dimensions, different animals. AC30 is a quick, strong, power carver, great for groomers and hard snow, not fantastic in loose snow. The XXL is a smooth, damp, ski that really shines in crud and powder, but also is stable at speed on groomers - it has a "looser" feel than the AC30. Both great skis, but in different ways. Hope this helps.
I think the XXL is the XL with a foam core. therefore, it's around 75mm waist. not much good in powder or crud. Also, it has a 43mm difference between the waist and the tip. Pretty turny.
the ac is a cap ski. the stockli a sandwich sidewall construction. cap skis don't last as well, IMO and experience, and break down.
the ac is a system ski. the XXL is flat. want Markers in a system or any binding you chose?
I'll agree that the Stockli may have a smoother quality. It has a rebound (the wood core XL) that is strong and even tempered.
This really has been helpful and eye opening. I too am 155lbs, so your opinion is really appreciated. It sounds like this ski is really versatile and will be a great east coast quiver of one. So one final question that has already been answered, but I need confirmation.
I am giving up too much hard snow grip with this ski? I still need it to hook up on hardpack including standard VT icy conditions?
