I've been lookin in to gettin powder skis. So far i've been looking at EP Pros and bents, but I'm starting to think those might be a little too soft for crud and tracked up pow. I just saw the New Life's on the Surface website and they look pretty sick. So I have a couple of questions:
Are the New Lifes burly enough to destroy more adverse conditions but still pretty playful? Are they halfway decent on harder snow (good enough to get me back to the lift on powder days)? Also has surface fixed those durability issues? Which one of these skis would you recommend for me?
I'm 5'8, 135 lbs, and an expert skier. I ski around colorado, mostly breck, but i would use these skis as a pure powder/ backcountry jib ski.
Any other opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!
