My dad has been skiing atomic metrons for like 10 years but is getting the crimsons or savages this year. He wants a pow ski too he is 6 feet tall and about 180 lbs. I'm thinking he would like jj's bent chetlers or rocker 2's. You think he should get a 185ish or 195ish? He will only be using these on pow days and he only skis like 10 days a year
I'd stay away from the more Jibby pow skis like JJ and the Bent. Unless your dads throwin 3's off backcoutry booters. Look for somthing more directional. Like the k2 pontoon, K2darkside, or Icelantic shaman. With a more directional ski and less rocker in the back will be better for chop.
If he skis a sum total of 10 days a year, and only wants to use the big planks on pow days, they might get used 2 days of the year. Might as well just get a rockered carving ski... Salomon BBR springs to mind. Then spend the rest on hookers, blow and partying.
