Hi, I hope someone out there can help me. I’m off to Jackson Hole in early 2011 for a month’s worth of skiing (wahoo!!). The problem I have is should I take 1 or 2 pairs of skis? I am travelling from the UK and would prefer to take just one pair. My choices are as follows:
1 – Liberty Helix 176 122-105-135 (non-rocker)
2 – K2 Apache Outlaw 124-88-111
I’ve skied the Apache Outlaws, and for me they are great all-mountain skis. My intention with the Liberty Helix, which I haven’t skied yet, was to gain more flotation etc in powder but my worry is that they’ll not perform well on groomed trails. Any thoughts?
Obviously, the Liberty’s are new & shiny and will definitely be coming with me – the question is … do I take the K2s??
Oh, and if anyone in Jackson Hole feels like meeting two strangers in town (that’s me & my girl) for a drink mid January, then get in touch (PM me).
