Need a powder ski - 175, rockered 110 under foot ish?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a powder ski, rockered and 110ish under foot that turns easily and won't murder me on moguls.  Realistically I ski about 10 glorious powder days a year when the skis need to go like a dream, but the rest of the time I'll be on chopped up / bumps.  I'm also quite limited by length as I want a 175 -180 ish.

Rossi S7/Roxy Mumbo Jumbo (same ski) in 176.

I heard the S7 is similar to a JJ, is that right? Hadn't really heard of Roxy doing skis, thought they were a surf brand?

They started putting out womens skis under the Roxy brand when quicksilver owned rossi. The skis have been rossi/dynastar skis. This does bring up an interestig question. Since quicksilver no longer owns rossi, why are there still roxy skis?

either the Mumbo Jumbo or the 176 Katana for something more serious. The Katana can eat soft spring snow better than the rossi designs.

 Is this a quiver ski? What is it gong to compliment?

My sister bought some Soloman Czars last year in about a 174 and loves them. I have seen them for sale around $300. You may like them too, so check the out http://www.backcountryoutlet.com/outlet/SAL1408/Salomon-Czar-Ski.html?AID=10423463&PID=1609763&SID=tfc_-_13_21_100425_76561ba9c5370856361513edb1e3a441

Dynastar still holds the license for the remainder of this year (longer perhaps) and there are some very good skis out there lurking under the Roxy nameplate. Foremost among those being the MJ (S7) and the Broomstix (Distorter). I just sold a Broomstix to a mid 30's race mom who took out the demo and raved about the ski an an OSQ................ (and she liked the graphic too).

Yeah, it'll be the generic off piste ski.  I'm trying to get down to on piste (SL or GS race, that'll be my next question), touring and then this one.

I'm based in Europe, so I've not even heard of a lot of the skis mentioned and I don't think the prices will apply, shame, that $300 looks a very good deal!!  Ideally I'd like to get something second hand anyway.

Head Blog looks good actually, but doesn't sound like a huge rocker.
