Hey guys! New here so let me know if I need to add any information
So I'm a senior in high school (18) and moving off to college next year. I'll be going to UW so the Pacific North West area, but my home mountain is Mammoth and when I can get there, Squaw. I'm 18, 5'10", 185lbs. I'm a Type III skier, and I'm looking for a ski that will be able to take a beating all around the mountain, either when I'm charging down groomers, hitting jumps in the park, searching for face shots on pow days, or jumping small cliffs and doing free ride type things. My budget is around $1200 with bindings
I've been spending the week at Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows and so far I've demoed:
Volk Kendos 177cm: too stiff for my taste
Blizzard Brahma and Bonafide 180cm: Switched the Kendos for the Brahama's, loved them but I really wanted something a little more playful (and less directional)
Atomic Vantage 90 CTI 176cm: Pretty light, playful, but just didn't strike a chord with me
Armada Invictus 95ti 167cm: Yeah, demoed them a little short, but they feel like lighter Bonafides. Very predictable, to the point where they're almost lifeless and boring
Line Sir Francis Bacon 178cm: Super stoked about these, I haven't swapped these out because I'm having so much fun! Great on groomers, good in the park (still have to get used to their width underfoot, I'm coming from 2014 Atomic Punx which are 84 underfoot). So far I love these!
I need your guys' opinions on my new choice of skis for next season, as I've narrowed it down to these possible choices:
Line Sir Francis Bacon
ON3P Kartel 106 (wood veneer if that makes a difference)
Faction Candide 3.0
4FRNT Kye 110
Thanks in advance!
