Hey guys, I'm moving from the east coast to Washington later this year and was looking into getting new skis. I want a ski that can handle the occasional 1+ ft days, the rare deep days, and the occasional crud + groomers, so something in the 105-115mm range sounds good. I basically plan on skiing bowls, chutes, trees and some groomers. I also want a playful ski, but also doesn't wash out easily after something like small-medium cliff drops, and is also stable enough at high speeds (some chatter is ok). Just for reference, I currently ride AR7s and would prefer something flexier than that.
I'm 5'8, 170lbs.
I've been looking into the SFB's and they seem like an ideal ski, but all the 178s and 184s seem to be sold out. I also looked into the CRJs since I can get a pair for $300, would you recommend these, or are they too wide to handle some crud and groomers?
Any other ski suggestions?
