Moving out West and I need help picking a ski
I'm moving from Quebec to nelson next winter so I'm planning on skiing whitewater and I was wondering what would be a good ski to bring there. Currently, I have the shreditors 102 but I'm starting to wonder if i'll need a wider ski for the powder days.
Also I can get some pretty good discount on these brands so if possible I'd like to stick to these. Thanks guys:
Nordica Patron, K2 112 shred, and the new Rossi freestyle pow ski that should be coming out. I haven't skied any but thats just what i now from those brands, I do however recommend the Jeffery 114 or 4frnt Yle if you are going somewhere with lots of snowfall. Those 2 skis also kill it on groomers so id take a look.
bent chets, and jeff 122 sorry theyre not on your list :( or if you want to go pretty wide at 125 you might consider head turbine 125
Spent this last year on the Shreddittor 112's as a one ski quiver and they did real good, plus you can always find good deals on K2
Although your 102s are wide enough, it can be nice to have something wider. From the brands you listed the Nordica Patron is the best ski. It kills it, and is in the top three in category (other two are Blizzard Gunsmoke and ON3P Jeffery 114).
The K2 Shreditor 112 would be second. The other three companies don't really make anything inspiring in this category.
Don't listen to this backseat surfers who say you want a ski that is 120mm or wider, 112-114mm is perfect if you actually know how to ski.
