The PERFECT 1 QUIVER E.COAST SKI !!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I've been searching, re-searching for the perfect ski for me on the e.coast and after demoing 11 different skis: ( salomon lord, volkl bridge, icelantic pilgrim, nordica enforcer, elan magfire ti, salomon x-wing ti, fisher watea, head johnny, line p90, line pflite, line p100) found the line prophet 100 to conquer them all in almost every condition - 12" pow to crud to groomed - the prophet 100 more than held it's own. I was blown away just how well this ski carved on the hard pack, blew through crud & floated on the pow. If you live on the e.coast, you have to try this ski. Can't believe a ski that wide could slay the whole mtn like they did. Loved 'em so much I bought a pair & mounted them up w/ a pair of solly z12tis!!

Which Watea did you try? I am looking at the 84's myself for a 1 quiver eastern ski!

I tried the 78's in a 174. They were great - very lively & fun. I would of liked a little more width underneath so if your considering the 84, your probably right to do so.

Oh,lighten up Bushwacker. Some people don't have the time or money to collect skis & want one ski that can perform well in all conditions. Next, you'll tell me there's no such thing as Santa Claus.

Skiing a 100 underfoot 9-4 on a eastern hard pack day would be pretty unpelasant I think.

  I know lots of people who ski the P100s all the time...only problem is they arnt that quick edge to edge...they carve very well though for a 100mm waisted ski

And a Pontaic Wave is a terrific sports car, compared to a Chevy Surburban, a Buick Roadmaster, a Ford Expedition and a Toyota Tundra.

If you want a "perfect" East Coast ski, try a softer GS ski.  It will handle powder and bumps very well,......compared to an old SG ski.

When you are ready to add an everyday ski to your East Coast quiver to accompany your once or twice a year 18"+ powder ski that looks really cool in the lift line anyway....  I recommend something in the 70-80 range- or thinner if you like to go fast.

Could you send that a couple states farther east, please? Heavy rain and warm a week ago Monday, and total drought since ... and for the foreseeable future. Very sad.

That's what I thought... until I tried them. Try them sometime - you'll be amazed.

I don't know anything about this ski in particular, but I like the general thinking.

BWPA, If I come up there, can you promise tasty trees like that?  Too sweet.

I cant promise that snow unless your willing to hike then I can make a promise youll ski untracked soft snow. The issue east coast woods are tough they are tight enough to keep most people out. I would be game to show anyone around on thursday or friday this year.

If you are around tomorrow I'm skiing Stowe for the first time.  I'm not looking to conquer the backcountry but I'm going to hit the mountain hard.  I may hike for some fresh turns if I'm in the mood.

a little walking is just fine with me as long as I don't need a harness and ice picks!  I am trying to finalize my schedule for the rest of the season. It would be fun and I have never skied there.
