Next season I should be out in BC skiing nothing but pow... sooo I'm in the market for a nice everyday powder ski that can handle variable conditions well and still be skiable on the cat tracks. I would describe myself as more of a finesse style skier, I like having good technique, not so much balls out. Also I like to have fun when I ski, lots of switch and butters and what not, so I'm also looking for a ski that's especially playful and light weight.
So far I've narrowed it down to two choices, Atomic Bentchetler and the Armada JJ. Both have rocker/camber, both have early taper, and both are mid 180s in length, just what I want.
If anyone has ridden either of these skis feed back on how they perform in any conditions, what you liked, what you hated or anything you think is important is much appreciated and will get you mad KARMA.
