All mountain skis are all the same...
Every ski company writes the exact same thing about their all mountain skis, they all seem to kill it everywhere.
I know, I know, its an all mountain ski. I guess what I'm trying to ask is, is it just a preference of graphics and brand loyalty? Every time I find a ski I think about buying, I read some bad reviews, and it no longer seems like such a good buy.
The list goes on and on.
Does it matter, or is it just a gamble?
definatly not true...having demo'ed a bunch of "all mountain skis" from different companies they all ski different. Personally, i hate rossi skis, have never liked them at all really. Even though the specs of the ski might be the same the material and everything makes it feel different and ski different
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
If you ski a bunch you will get a feel and realize they are different. I personally think the Rossi S3 is a great ski! I think that having a rocker is the direction that companies will start to go when it comes to their all mountain skis. The S3 is a great example of a ski that is fun for playing around in the park, ripping crud or riding some pow. You just have to try different sticks and see what you like.
1msp's expensive as hell 2 rossi s3's whati would choose 3 conics cheap not very durable

every ski from every company will be the same.
every company will say their park skis kill it in the park, their all mountain skis slay the entire mountain, and their pow skis float like non other.
now it comes down to the actual dimensions and features (rockers or camber or reverse camber) and the construction (side wall vs. cap, wood core, all that internal stuff).
you'll learn all about what makes a ski work with some research and you will be able to tell the difference

Little of what I do has any meaning or lasting significance.
I am, and I have no issues typing normally. It corrects typo's for me too...
