2 ski quiver??- got some spk's--- how about some hellbents?
I have read threw the posts, but still have a couple questions and just looking for some positive input. Im 6'4 200lbs and an expert skier and looking to get some new powder/ all mtn skis. I Have a Pair of SPK's and love them for park but need something for floating in the Pow Pow at Big Sky/Bridger Bowl and Steamboat! Im Looking for a rockered ski above 105mm underfoot. I live in Mn so here i only ride my spk's (unless mn gets a foot of powder ha ah) I will be mainly be riding them in the mts 3 weeks of the year. Ive kinda narrowed it down to the Hellbents, Ep Pros, JJ"s Obsethed and Bacons, Kinda leaning towards Hellbents189/Ep Pros! need something that can shred the whole mountain from charging The headwaters to jibbing around on the side of groomers at the end of the day. any advice, or other suggestions.??? Looking to make the best 2 ski quiver and already have the Park skis! Thanks and drink to the ski gods for good snow this winter!
i think that you would be too much for bacon to be honest. they are awsome skis dont get me wrong but i think you'd overpower them. imm 6' 170lbs and i have to be careful sometimes. but for taking a ski off your list i would like to reccomend moment's bibby pro model, i think it would be what you are searching for.
I don't wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
Gravity is a harsh mistress.
Hey man, i was in your situation a couple weeks ago and searched searched and searched some more and finally ended up picking up the JJ. I am somewhat close at 6'2 and 190 and i bough 185 JJ's for the simple reason that they are still going to be a good all mountain ski. You will be able to still ride the groomers and have fun doing it.
Perfect ski for Mantana Powder-rode em last year and 6'4'' 235, Hellbents are the best choice.
if your not going to ride them a ton i woulkd go with the obsethed forthe versitility, and bents wont hold on the runs under the tram
HM. Im almost in the same pickle as you..I was thinking Hellbents, JJ's. Or even Huge trouble's. Anyone know about the Huge troubles..?
--> totem pole
Had to face the reality of being a poor college student and sold my spks and bought a pair of 08 ARV 185's and put some griffons on em. They are alot of fun and cant wait to slay some freshies soon
