(detailed) Best Pow SKi for Me?
I am 5'4 109 pounds. I want a Powder Ski with 115 mm at most underfoot. I am afraid if i go bigger it will "wish-washy" carving on groomers, because i am lighter.I ski at Mt.Bachelor Oregon we have a fair amount of pow days during the season, that i wish i didn't have only my invaders. I wont be buying them till later this season (when stuff goes on sale) but i am wanting to know what i should be keeping an eye on. I think i want something with rocker i definitely want a twin. I basically want a ski that i can take a fresh pow run (forward or switch hahaha) then rip down the groomers to hit a couple jumps. But i want these skis to last so they will never touch a rail. and i really want a rocker and early rise for increased flotation.
Thank you i need the most advise possible. so if some one already suggested the skis that you would. just post that ski up again so i am certain.
Here are some skis i have seen:
Line Elizabeth's (what are they underfoot?)
Salomon Czars (same question)
Atomic Blogs (again)
Moment Night Trains (dimensions underfoot?)
ON3P Pow ski?
Ninthward Pow ski?
Surface Pow ski?
Fischer Pow ski?
obviously, since you're here, you've heard of something called the internet. here's your assignment: use it.
o have narrowed it down to
Surface One Life
yeah thanks i have been doing some research i just wanted to know NS's favorites
you asked for dimensions. because you totally can't find those by typing the ski name into google and hitting the i'm feeling lucky option.
i know i was just in the make of making a thread and at the end i realized i should name some skis so put down some then realized there were others and i didn't know the dimensions. fair enough i would say sorry if i made you face palm hahaha
You're 100lbs. When I was 150lbs, I learned to ski deep powder on 68mm waisted GS skis. Learn to ski powder, then get powder skis so you get to enjoy the new magic!(plus people who can't ski pow without superfats piss me off for some reason). You're small, maby you should get a rockered park ski, which can replace your invaders and be your pow ski(Moment Reno Rockers, Rossi S3, '10 Fujas, or Alphas will do).

i ski powder good just not verry enjoyable on my invaders yess i am small does not meen i dont know how to ride powder
good info there actually, the s3 (only the 9-10 though) is a very good suggestion.
Dude, I would put you on a Jeronimo before a Wren considering your size. The Jeronimo still has the rocker and will be able to ski pow beautifully for you, whereas the 181 Wren just might be a little bit massive, and its a little more suited to charging big lines than skiing switch turns. Give me a PM with more details, I'd be happy to point you to the best ski in our lineup for what you want.
Little of what I do has any meaning or lasting significance.
sounds like it. my little sister has them and loves them. theyre a little rockered, but nothing extreme. sounds like he want something a little fatter than there though.
listen to rowen.
"i sucked my gfs nipples last night"
i would recommend either the S3 or the Kung Fujas, in the 160's, the other ski's you mentioned might be a bit much until you gain about 50 more pounds
