I'm searching for the best one-ski-quiver for a 60/40 groomers/powder use. If will replace my Fischer AMC 76 164cm. I'm skiing 2-3 weeks/year in the alps, so I can't foresee the conditions, that's why I want one ski for everything. I know that it's a compromise. I'm 5'9'' ~175lbs and propably a level 7-8 skier.
One of the main problems is: I don't really know what width is necessary to get a good performance in deep snow. I just know that 76mm are not enough.
After spending many hours reading in different forums I now focus on these two models. For some reason they seem to fit best in my small radius + enough speed stability on groomers + just enough width float well in powder requirement profile. I would choose the 178cm Sultan or 182cm Punisher at the moment. The Sultan seems to be a bit more groomers-oriented whith its metal inlays. On the other hand the Punisher should work better in deep snow, because it's softer and wider.
I also toy with the idea of getting the Völkl Mantra in 177cm for more float. It seems to be the best for groomers of all the ~95ers, but has rather a big turning radius.
Any thoughts or recommendations to my speculative considerations? (please)
