Advice on an east coast pow ski
So I've been skiing 186 ON3P jeffreys (back when they were 108 underfoot) as my do everything ski on the east coast. I really cant say enough about them. I ski stowe and they really excel in open trees and snowfields like the chin, balls falls, etc. these things charge and are pretty much unstoppable. However I'm gunna be getting some cash this summer and am looking for another all mountain/east coast powder ski to compliment them. Ideally I would like something a little more maneuverable and playful for bumps and tight trees. I'm looking for skis with a shorter turn radius then the first run jeffreys, around the same width (maybe even wider) with a slightly softer flex profile. Any and all suggestions outside of these specs are welcome as well if you think they would fit the bill.
I'm 5'8'', 150 lbs if that helps at all.
Look into some Sir Francis Bacons, last years were 108 underfoot and next years are 104. Next years are supposedly stiffer and are a balsa wood core.
Rossi Super 7's were one of the most fun skis I had the opportunity to rip this season. Super light, maneuverable, and they absolutely killed everything I put them up to.
Some other things to consider would be that due to their weight they would make for a killer touring setup and that because they're such a highly produced ski you should be able to pick some up for considerably less than a comparable ski this summer.
