I'm currently using my atomic vantage theory (95mm), which I love as they can simply take on any conditions without too much work. But I'm now ready to buy a proper powder ski as off piste/ backcountry really is where I'd like to do most/ more of my skiing. With the end of the season approaching I'm wanting to snap up a bargain on a pair so would love some suggestions suited to my riding style:
- I'm big and heavy (6'2" and 102kg) so would want something on the stiff side
- I don't care about doing any tricks, just want to send cliffs, therefore more directional
- Would quite like something that can float very well but get me back down the groomers in one piece at the end of the day, so some camber
- Waist width ideally 110-120mm
The atomic automatic 117 and the faction elevens (115mm) are winning at the moment as they have great reviews and have found both pretty cheap, anyone had experience using either of them?
I also found the apo Ron for a VERY low price and am considering it but can't find much about them.
So please comment with experiences using these skis and/ or alternative suggestions!
