I need some Ski help
Whats up NS! I'm looking for some advice on what skis I should be on this winter. I am looking for two pairs and am open to any and all suggestions.
- I'll be skiing mostly in Colorado (Winter Park, A-Bay, Copper, etc)
- Most recently been skiing the Moment PB&J and Deathwish.
- 6'2", 190lbs - Aggressive Skier, like to ski trees on Jane side and East Wall but also open it up on groomers and need something mid-stiff or so.
- Have a pair of FKS and a Pair of Jesters to put on them
- Am looking for an all mountain every day ski and a mid-fat powder ski around 120mm
The skis I have been considering are Another Set of PB&J's, Jeffery, Bent Chetler, Helldorado etc but am open to whatever (on a side note I saw the candide 3.0 on evo for 499 and am thinking about picking up a pair) . Would prefer to spend as little as possible but ya, let me know what you guys are thinking!
The 3.0 is a really nice choice for what you are looking for, and for 499 you really can't go wrong. Bent chetlers would also be really good. All the choices you have would be great. Its all up to you
skiing is fun
Benchetlers are a solid choice for the fatter skis, but i would also look at some magic js as they are a very simalar ski.
As for mid charger, 3.0s would be good, smaller jefferies maybe, devestator etc.
Steeze to the knees
Thanks for the replies! I have wanted bent chetlers fo a few years now so I'll probably pull the trigger on them.
The factions are a sick deal too, can anyone comment on their stiffness?
Was also thinking about a shorter pair of the dreathwishes... I rode the 190s and they felt kind of clunky but the 184 might ski a little easier and at 112 underfoot it'd be similar to the faction or a jeffery. I've never skied on3p but I've only heard good things. Has anyone skied any of those 3 I listed? Are they difficult to get on edge on groomers at all? My fattest daily driver was the PB&J at 101 underfoot and I only skied the death wish in 6"+
All times are Eastern (-4)
