Looking for recommendations on Ski's (east coast all mountain)
i am looking for a solid pair of all mountain skis presumably for the east coast (VT, NH, Maine). My main mountains are Sugarbush and Madriver. I am 6-6'1" 190 but maybe 200 if i can build up the ten more muscle pounds by ski season around here. I am not fat by any means i am only 5% body fat. I ski very hard ( have broken multiple skis) and need a strong durable ski. Right now i have a pair of original Line Chronics that i will use for park since i am kinda fading out of park i don't need new park skis. Last year i bought a pair of Elizabeths for powder and screwing around so i dont need a fat ski. I am currently looking at the ARV, AR6, and Chronic Blend. Since i have a softer park ski i am looking for a stiffer ski that still is poppy and light but can charge pretty hard down the mountain and through the trees and bumps. I need these skis to last me about 3 seasons so they have to be pretty bomb proof.
If any one could help me out with recommendations on skis, ski length, and even best places to buy it would be greatly appreciated.
I would try to find a Volkl G4/G41/AX4. That is a great east coast rip stick.
i ski for Head
i say the ar6 would be the ideal ski for u... super durable and solid all-mountain

def. sounds like a candidate for a 179 PE
Or the new troublemaker.
Rep the 207
maybe 4frnt msp...its a dope ski u could use for powder also, but it tears upp on th hill too
Have yourself a blast and f*ck 'em if they can't take a joke!
PE's are legit, but if you don't have that kind of cash go with the fugitives, if you have more money then for just PE's go to armada T-Halls
978 rep the 617
Yup, Pes sound good. Also, volkl makes a nice ski in the bridge and the wall. The wall is more park oriented but still a good ski.
