Me: 42 year old male, live in Colorado, Ski about 30-40 days per year. Been skiing like this since I was 3. 5'8" 210lbs.
Mostly skiing Copper Mountain and other mountains in Summit County, CO.
Nordica B4 178 from a few years ago. I didn't really like these skis at all. They seemed too light and flexible for me. I got rid of them after one season.
Volkl Allstar 178 - I really liked these skis. Seemed to be great on groomers and fast stuff.
Nordica HotRod Jet Fuel 186 - I got these after some advice on these forums. I started out using these for days with 4-6" of powder and crud days. A few times I had them on groomer days though and I actually liked them better then my Volkls. I used these almost all the time last season. We didn't have too many huge powder days last season. I really like these skis more then anything I've tried in a number of years.
Anyway.. I'm thinking of ditching my Allstars and just using the Nordica's almost all the time.
Now that everyone is talking about Rocker and Camber, I was thinking about trying some powderish type skis again...
Any suggestions on a wide skis to go along with my Jet Fuels?
I saw some K2 Obsethed 179 Demos yesterday for $399 with bindings, but I'm thinking if I get skis for powder, I should really be looking at something in the 185+ range. Any advice on anything to try? or buy if I see a deal?
