Either salomon or fischer, what?
alright, just found out iv got a hook up through my cousin and can get some skis from salomon or fischer. i will live in breckenridge by mid december so will be skiing summit county almost everyday this season. im 6' 3'' 195 lbs. im going to pick up a fun ski (thinkin along the lines of the watch life or invader/anthem) and will need a fat pow ski. between salomon and fischer what do you think is the best big mountain ski? i was thinking either the salomon xw lab or the rocker. whats your guys input?
i went ficher, never rode salomon fat skis before but i like ficher so far
I'm gonna say fischer. I've seen many salomons fall apart.
nah yo...i love salomons there sick and never fell apart

X-Wing Labs are a hell of a lot of ski. Douglas and Abma don't even ski them, I heard.
Probably Fischer 207's.

here's how i see it for a salomon/fischer 2 ski quiver: (2 different ratio scenarios)...
Do you: - anticipate skiing mostly park/groomed, with a bit of pow/big mtn here and there,
or..... - are you mostly about big mtn, with a bit of park here and there?
 more park: pure park ski + all mtn/pow ski...
Fischer Addict Pro(181) + Fischer Misfit 186
Salomon Dumont (181) + Salomon Gun 188
 more big mtn: all mtn twin + big mtn ski...
Salomon Foil (182) + Fischer Watea 101 (192)
Fischer Misfit (186) + Salomon XW Lab(198)
these are in progressive park -> big mtn bias. i wouldn't bother with the fischer 207: i doubt its on sale much, and i also doubt breck has the terrain/snow to justify such a monster. same can be said of the rocker, i just think that in a 2 ski quiver, both would be unnecessary.
figure out what you want out of your quiver and fire away...
well i want to get a solid all mountain ski that will do well in some powder too. will the xw lab just be too huge?? maybe go with the gun then?? i guess i can also get blizzard skis too. my cousin said he is better friends with the salomon rep so i might habe a better chance of getting two two skis if i went through salomon. what about
1.xl lab + dumont
2.gun + dumont
3.gun + spk
i need to make up my mind by today though...
Depends how deep the pow you'll be skiing is. Guns + Dumonts sound pretty good to me.

what if i went with the guns and the xl labs and then got some invaders or watch life's for park. i dont even know if i can get two pair yet, i just know he has hooked lots of out family with really nice stuff before. if i can only get one i think i might go with the guns.
