LamafamaSo much moronic 'advice' in this thread, the above being the cherry on the cake of shit. Get the ski that:
1 suits your abilities
2 suits where you ski
3 build a quiver, theres no such thing as a one ski quiver
My quiver is progressive for different places I ski and different conditions. For Scotland and times in between storms I have either my Kastle MX88's and Volkl Explosiv's. For most condition's in the Alps I have Legend Pro 105's.
While the 105's can carve down a groomed run, navigate bumps and other non ideal condition's, the Kastles utterly destroy them in a back to back comparison, why? Well one is 88 under foot and has more side cut, weighs less and is more agile.
Also width is only a small part of it, rocker, sidecut, flex all play a massive part of it. I much prefer even my bottom feeding LP's to some of the noodly powder skis out there.
Did you not say the same thing as me?
Get the ski that suits your ability?
Get a ski you are comfortable skiing?
He is asking not asking how to build a quiver, he already gets that he needs to build a quiver. He has a ski that is 92 under door and has some side cut. He is looking for a powder ski. There are quite a few questions to be asked before anyone can truly suggest something for him to get.
What kind of turns do you take, will you be skiing trees, chutes, or bowls. Are you more of a free rider or freestyler. Will you be landing switch and taking off switch, will you be trekking/hiking, how much do you weigh, what's your ability, do you prefer a buttery flex or a stiffer bomber flex.
Then you can get into what type of rocker/camber/flatness that he might want, length and width.
I was telling him that it doesn't really matter what you ski as long as you can rip it.
You for instance might like to get down inside the bumps and I prefers to bomb over them making gs turns. If it's storming I prefer something noodley and playful with a decent side cut so I can stay in trees. If it's a bluebird pow day and it's open terrain I like a stiff bomber shallow side cut ski.
But all of my skis are fat skis. I have some skis with a 15m radius and some with a 26m.
