jmellberg800Im looking for a cheaper powder/crud ski that I can use up here in wisconsin. I like jumping off of any rock/ pillow i can find and getting crazy with it. i ski pretty fast but still would like something playful, after the powder gets packed down i love to ski fast and blast through all the little piles made by pizzaing skiers. We dont get a lot of snow the most being a foot but the usual being 6-8 on a good day. I want a ski that is tough, rockered and relatively cheap. It needs to be able to take a beating as half the time ill be skiing with 1-2 inches of snow over a shit ton of rocks. Right now im looking at the surface all mountain blanks given their 2.5mm edges and extruded bases all with a good price. Sadly they are full cambered and im not a fan. I could make an exception and i might have to. But i thought i would first turn to you guys. I would really like something at least 106 underfoot and 120-130 at the tip and tail as im a bigger guy 5'11 190 pounds. Any suggestions would be great. I would totally just go buy a pair of kartels or something from moment skis cause thats what i ride. but at upwards of 500 dollars i cant in good faith buy them for "powder" in the northwest.
KravtZJust wait it out man...seasons almost over and you wont get anything for that cheap right now unless you buy used which is never fun.
I bought surface outsiders for $175 brand new this summer in July which is probably right in your ballpark for skis you want.
Only another month or two left just wait it out son
Profahoben_212i came here to suggest these.
They are my dedicated rock ski and man can they point it. Dropped a 10-12 footer and flew through a field of moguls....i felt like candide. If you stay on top of them they will stay under you.
