All Mountain/Park skis for big guys
I'm 6'3" and 105kg (230lbs). I've been on Kung Fujas the last 5 years but looking for something new to charge off piste and ride more in the park. They are heavy!
Not fussed about rails but want to dial in rotations.
I'm between European resorts like Chamonix and Verbier, and Revy, Kicking Horse.
Mostly in the powder or trees and hitting any feature that will get me in the air.
Was looking at the SFB in a 190 but worried it might be too soft for me.
Love that low swing weight though!
so maybe not given enough info.
I'm between the SFB and peacemakers at the moment.
On3p kartel 98 or 106 if you want something a little wider
I know they're huge, but I often rock 194 Surface New Life's (now called the Balance) as my everyday ski, regardless of conditions. They are 151/121/151, but are nice and stiff, super poppy and hold an edge surprisingly well on groomers.
That said, I'm also rocking 186 ON3P Jeronimo's for less than perfect days and they've been great. Also nice and stiff, but still poppy and playful. If I had to do it again, I'd probably go with the Kartel 106, just for a bit of extra width for a daily driver (and I don't do much park at all).
(For reference, I'm 6'3 and 280, so also a large dude)
thanks for the suggestions guys.
I'll see what I can get my hands on.
Moment PBJ or Shaggys tubby?
