I am unsure on which ski I should buy for east coast powder days. I hear great things about the shreditor and its all mountain capabilities.
I was wondering if anyone else has demoed any of these skis?
What would be the most durable ski??
SOrry about that. Could mods please move this to gear talk.

i demoed the 14/15 shreditors out west and i loved them. i actually am really considering getting myself a pair. the only thing i know the guy said they did make some changes in the newer model with some change with the rocker and the way it blended with the tip and tail. I am pretty sure they narrowed the tip and tail. But regaurdless i thought this was an awsome ski and I would deffently recommend it!
those are all some pretty different skis you have listed. what are you looking for?

If you want a ski only for powder, go at least 115 underfoot. K2 Pettitor (Shreditor 120), Atomic Bent Chetler, Armada JJ, Moment Bibby Pro, etc. And assuming you like skiing switch, get a twin tip with rocker tip and tail. If you only ski forward, you could consider directional skis as well like the K2 Annex 118 and the Atomic Automatic.
Also, I should add that the skis I mentioned can still get by on the groomers. If it's soft, they can even carve pretty well. They're good all mountain skis when there's fresh snow and you want to mainly be in the pow, trees, cliffs, etc, but take them on the groomers to get between places. I am on K2 Obsethed (117mm underfoot) and ski them almost exclusively. As long as it's not really bad conditions.
If you want something purely for the deep powder with no concern for anything else, go full rocker and even bigger. But based on the skis you mentioned I doubt that's what you want.
