So im looking for an all mountain/ powder ski. I live on the east coast and i currently have the volkl wall and line prophet 90. im 6ft nd 220lbs. I rarely use my prophet 90s cept for trip and when we rarely get powder. I find that they're good in up to about 6 in. so im deciding to sell those and am going to buy a fatter ski for deeper days and trips out west. My number one choice right now is the surface One Life because ive heard that it is stiffer and a really fun ski. Im also looking at liberty helix and salomon shogun. Please give any input on the one life or any other suggestions. Thanks!
theres a pair of 189 one lifes for 300 on tgr
i would buy them if i had 300 dollars
but if i had 300 dollars i woulda just boughten dukes with it and would only have about 100 dollars left so i could not buy them :)
Rest in peace Shane.

Im not sure if the one life is the best for the east coast but its hella fucking fun and I would absolutely recamend it to any1, FUCKING LOVE THIS SKI!!!!!! I use it in the park and charge AK lines with it, just a fucking amazing ski.
Business in the front and party in the back is what i live by.
I never tried the One LIfe, but I tried next years Live Free (it's the Live Life but their mountaineering version, so lighter and with a more "subtle" graphic). That ski killed it on the east coast. It was a 181 and 110 underfoot. It no longer had the 3 stage rocker, but instead had a more rounded rocker. That ski could fucking rip a groomer and was still super playful in the trees. I couldn't believe how stable that ski was, even on hard pact. IMO it is the perfect east coast ski, if you like a wider ski. It comes in a 191, but I think that one is 120 underfoot. I don't know if this helps you but I loved that ski haha
One Lifes are the best powder ski for carving over icy groomers, and the most versatile pow jib ski IMO. They'd work fine for what you are saying, I love mine(might be trying to replace with caylors though). One Lifes are also pretty easy to use in park.
