Alright, currently i've got some Original Armada Jp vs Juliens (188's). There a pretty nice ski in softer snow. Light, lively, fun but i'm considering of selling them and getting a more big mtn orientated ski which can still rip it up when theres a foot or so of new snow. I ski NZ most of the time so i won't get skiing many insanely deep days. I basically want something reasonably stiff and about 185 in length which is great in crud and tracked snow as well as harder snow bumps you get when it hasnt snowed in a while over here. For any of you that know NZ, this will be used at TC really + cardies chutes a bit. Oh and i like to jump off stuff too. Twin tip essential
I am 181cm or so and about 170 lbs.
I'm looking at the new Gotama which looks super nice, its stiff, slightly rockered. 107 underfoot reasonably big turning radius, i've heard its pretty easy to move around in tight spots as well as being super stable in crud and at high speeds.
Also looking at the new Motherships, i don't know much about other than there 110 or so underfoot, very stiff, and have a pretty tight turning radius (don't know if its super small, might be an issue in pow)
Thoughts comments? Feel free to suggest me other skis but as much as i want something like On3p's I wanna get something over here in NZ since its winter now and that way i can use them now as well as not having to pay $100+ on shipping.
