Swandog7Shreditor 102 is playful and a little floppy at high speeds but can still hold, and if your a good skier you should be able to handle it. Kartel 106 is a super sick durable ski but will most likely be outta your price range. Id also recommend Icelandic Nomad at 105 underfoot which would be a little stiffer than shreditors and close to Kartels but again may exceed your budget. A ski within in your budget might be the moment pb&j. Its just at 101 underfoot and can rip everywhere you take it. Defiantly a more all mountain park capable ski, but can ride through occasional pow. I believe you can find it for like $412?
Did quite a bit of research and the shreditor looks way too flexy for me.
Let me revise what I wrote originally regarding flex and characteristics, something playful in tip and tail but stable and stiff underfoot, like volkl steps.
SFBs and Moment PB&Js look sick, I'll keep looking for them in cheaper prices. Kartels have a less progressive flex right? Combined with the price that doesn't seem like a feasible option. I don't like the rest of the specs of the nomad (construction and price). Honestly, I love the shape of the shreditors and if they were stiffer I would get them.
MartianManWhere are you skiing in NH? I ski up there all the time, and you are likely overrating the snowfall levels. I would highly recommend staying away from 115mm skis, because 99.62% of the tim they will be overkill. 98-108 range is going to wide enough to handle pretty much anything NH can throw at you, while still being able to carve on icy hardpack.
ON3P Kartel 98 and 106 (good luck finding cheap)
KF All Mountain (same problem as ON3P)
Salomon Rocker2 100 (probably your best best to find cheap)
My best suggestion for you: Moment PB&J. Stable as fuck, yet playful and twinned. 102 waist, and it comes in a 188 for you. Problem is getting a deal...
Okemo/Sunapee on the daily. Located south of Dartmouth but very occasional trips elsewhere
I'll trust you on the snowfall thing. I skiied killington with some people a year or two ago who were regulars, and what they said was shitty conditions for them was better than anything I'd ever experienced in Jersey, so I probably am glorifying it too much up here. We will see though
Swandog7Only problem about PB&J is pricing. I would have recommended rocker 2 108 but wasn't sure if there are cheap ones out there
Salomon rocker2 100 sounds good but it seems like one of the s line skis like it would be overun soon by touristy demos and what not. They are kinda cheap as well, would they be a good option for anything park or going switch and hitting cliffs and stuff?
36ChambersOfWuDps Spoons are the ski for you, I can guarantee it
I said 300 not 1300 jesus
right now what I'm favoring (in this order) are:
Moment PB and J (I want to know more about the flex pattern with them though)
and then Saloman rocker2 100
Any other suggestions? Disregard price as I said before these are literally all too much but I will figure something out. Just nothing of the dps spoons caliber...
