Its time for me to make the jump out of the park rat phase and do some real skiing on real mountains with real snow. I've been a park rat for most of my skiing life and have only skied park skis. I ski varied PNW conditions and am an aggressive skier. I'm also big (6'5'', 210) and I'm looking for a bomber ski that can rip pow, jibs, the occasional park lap, groomers and steep and will hold its own in most conditions. This wouldn't be my only ski but it should be something I can use about 80% of the time. Because of my size length is a big consideration and it limits my choices (gotta be above 190).
I made a thread on this very subject a few months ago and I'm still hunting for the right pair. since then Ive listened to you advice and narrowed myself down to a few specific models. Looking to make purchase this cyber monday as ski season is around the corner and would love to hear people input on skis as i won't be able to test them all myself.
The skis I'm currently considering are:
RMU North Shore
Icelantic Keeper/Nomad RKR
Solomon Rocker 2 108
Rossignol S7 from last year (not high on the list but I can get a really good deal on a pair)
I would really appreciate anyones feed back on any of these skis, and information about your own skiing style and what kind of conditions you ski them in. Also would love feedback regarding the difference in models (icelantic nomad vs keeper and atomic automatic vs bentchetler). In general anything is appreciated.
