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.
According to your information; you ski hard, you're not a scrawny bitch, you have a history of breaking skis, and you have a dedicated park ski and powder ski. The Prophet 90's or 100's would be a damn good choice for you. 186cm in either ski would be your size, you would be able to dominate the mountain and still be able to hit some jumps, and apparently those skis ride switch amazingly well.

oh yea and prophets are built like tanks and are very stiff, i'd get the 90s if you have dedicated park and pow skis already, they will have a nice balance. stance on the prophets is also set back farther than on the blends so they will be better for charging.
