i'm looking for an eastern ski to compliment my stockli spirit pro's in 155cm. heres where i'm at.
me: 5'6" 155 lbs, 30 plus years skiing, advanced east coast skier.
preferences: hardpack, soft snow, carving, speed, mainly eastcoast.
looking at: stockli sinox, spirit globe and cross and laser versions, rossignol avenger 76, blizzard magnum 7.6, possbily atomic versions and a comparable fischer (loved my rx8's).
note: i am going to a demo day next week end so i'm trying to get ideas, so i dont miss anything.
my stockli's are 155cm (maybe a bit short) but i love them for hardpack short turn ripping. but am looking for something more stable at speed with a little more underfoot that i can ski all day on. probably going to go between 160 and 165 on these (i think?)
i did do some searches and got some good info, but was looking for input especially from western new york skiers or people that ski mainly hardpack but varying conditions. thanks
