Hey NS, I'm looking for an all mountain/ pow ski. Probably about 65%pow, 35% groomers. I live on the east coast, but I am going to Park City this February and am looking to get them before that. I'm 5'11 about 160 and want to do a little bit of everything other than park with them. I have my heart set on the memorial CRJs (180) and that just about tops off my price range. What else should I be looking at, or are the CRJs a good choice? Thanks!
The ON3P Jeffreys are great all mountain skis. By they widths(128-108-138) they don't seem as ideal for powder as you are describing, more like 60/30. But since they have rocker in the tips and tails, that really helps a lot, and they come in 186 so getting slightly bigger size would also help put you at about 65/35. I love mine, they are a really nice ski. My only problem is they are a little on the stiffer side, but that is just because of my preferences.
this. I have the jeffreys as well and they are superb for everything. I haven't had the pleasure to try them out in powder but they definately hold up on the icy groomers. Such a great, playful, and poppy ski.
Sorry for your friend, I skied mine almost every day last season, they held up just fine and were exactly the opposite of dead and sluggish. Seriously, the most fun skis I have ever been on. I think I have a review on my profile.
