cydwhitNah, please don't go Super 7.... and I still don't think that's a very good deal.
My personal choice would be 189cm K2 Shreditor 112's. Super fun, super versatile ski, that's usually available for cheap. I got mine for less than 350, and that was a year ago. Also, they haven't changed other than graphics so it's totally worth it to get an older years model.
powderwhorYou can do better man, just gotta look around. Super 7's are great skis but $500 isn't that great a price and they're very directional. Not very playful or freestyle friendly which big mountain skis can be entirely capable of. Wide skis have become very usable and easy to ski with the way they're built these days, you'll be thankful for something with some girth when it gets deep up there.
Just some ideas, and thats just on one sight
hippystinxwould second that...
i have the squads and they are a super fun ski, but i have a quiver. The shreditor is a very fun ski all around the mountain. I have a pair of the 189s center mounted and i ski pow, park, groomers, trees, and above all drop cliffs on them. They are a super fun ski and if you have a limited quiver i would highly suggest something more playful like the shreditor than a more directional charger like the super.
ljackstarSounds pretty good, my only wonder is if it's worth it to get a more directional ski if I already have a park/groomer ski? Or is it worth giving up a bit of float in pow to get more control in bumps and trees?
