Ok, so i just moved to colorado...currently working at loveland. i brought out my atomic slalom skis from when i was a fag, and last yrs line prophet 90s, but im not satisfied. bottom line is the prophet 90 is not big enough i want a ski for deep days, but something that wont be completely unreasonable when i head back to vermont (line 130/volkl sumo are out of the question). im a short guy and not getting much bigger at 5'6" and 135lbs. ive been thinking about the volkl gotama (176) simply because of its reputation in deeper stuff out west. however, ive really been leaning toward a more fun ski like lines sfb or elizabeth. is the sfb way too big for someone my size at 182 and a 115 waist or should i downsize to the 172/110 elizabeth? also heard good things about the 4front vct (175) and even been toying with the fattypus a lott/d sender. anyone got any words of inspiration? ...especially on the sfb vs elizabeth (keeping my weight in mind).
I ski loveland almost everyday, I have the K2 SETH's, there sick for powder and groomers and the conditions like Loveland has currently. The hold an edge very will and do great in crud also. They are 98 underfoot. Great all-mountain powder ski.

looking to meet anyone who enjoys long, fast turns on sweet groomers, big hits or deep pow in the glades!! Must love the outdoors and not be afraid of cold temperatures or adverse weather conditions.

Yeah, if I were you I would get some volkl gots, the lizzies would also be good but wont be good in most of the east. If you want a little more play in you ski and not quite as bomber as the gots, I would look at the rossi bc. And to those of you that hate on colorado, thats cool and don't come here, colorado has one of the best vibs for a reason, fewer haters.
Not anymore. I'm so sick and tired of this shit. Everyone fucking moved from the east coast to Colorado and now it is completely fucked. You guys should all go home or something, seriously. Colorado is officially the new East coast. And I am damn pissed about it.
seriously, what is that grab? the nangle, circe 1996? sick facial expression BRO, youre fuckin RIPPING IT UP. -Yetigonecrazy
There is a ton of transplants from the east/midwest who make it suck. It is too hard to find housing with all of them living there and driving up housing prices on their trust fund. Not to mention when they are in their layered jersey/tall tee laden crew, they think that just because they can throw an ugly 7, slay dog faced girls at salt creek and smoke weed on their parent's dime that they and their crew are the shit. Then they claim they are sponsored by pioneer sports, wow.
