Stumped...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am looking for a new pair of true mid-fat all-mountain ski's.  I know this question has been asked probably a thousand times in this forum but I am stumped.  I am 6"0" 200lbs and have been skiing for 25 years at an advanced level.  Recently made the switch from east coast skiing to west coast thanks to my brother relocating to Boulder.  Been skiing Breck, Vail, WP and Steamboat for the last two years and have demo'd a bunch of skis from Rossi Phantom SC 80's, K2 Apache Recons to Head Monster 102's in deep pow in the Vail bowls.  Love to ski the entire mountain and get bored easily on just one type of terrain.  Looking for a ski that is versatile enough to ski the bumps, carve up groomers and float nicely in medium height pow.  I have been looking at a few skis and would love to hear some opinions:

 

1) Head Monster IM 82's

2) Blizzard Magnum 8.7 IQ

3) Line Prohhet 90

4) Volkl Unlimited AC 50

5) Volkl Grizzly

 

Any ski's that I have not listed that you recommend would be also be appreciated.  Thanks for your input!

Colorado is a long way from the West Coast.  I lived there once.  Seems to me Mapquest had me drive some 700 miles to the East, and another 300 or so Southeast to get there.

 I'm sorry.  I was just playing.  I always had that running beef with people when I lived there.  Lots of Midwesterners and NorEasters out there calling it out West.  It was a very confusing time for me in my young adulthood.

I posted a similar post 3-4 weeks ago looking for a possible one quiver West Coast (Mt Bachelor) ski. After much reading and a willingness to shell out considerable $$ I settled on the Kastle MX88, lots of stuff here on this ski, just do a search.
