All Mountain Ski Recommendations (first personal pair)
(Posting this to help my brother out)
Hey guys, been skiing in Utah for 20 years or so, and finally got to move out here, so looking for some recommendations.
Park City, Utah
6'5, 188lbs, 20 Years Old
Im looking for something I can play around in the park with a little, but still rip through groomers, and hit some powder on snow days.
Ive been looking at Line, Moment, Nordica, and Atomic. Any suggestions?
Basically I need a one ski quiver. And also, any recommendations on bindings?
Thanks for the help!
I think everyone will agree that the target waist width for a jack of all trades type ski will be right around 100mm underfoot. I had been using my JJ's for everyday skiing here in Utah and they were special. Nevertheless, a change was in order and so I slightly downsized to the Fischer Ranger 108's that I grabbed off steepandcheap for pennies and they have been better on piste than the JJ's, and not noticeably inferior in soft snow. Time will tell I guess. I wouldn't consider taking them in the park tho.
You may want to demo a few skis and see. I'd try the new Armada ARV 106. A lot of people have been positive about that skis ability all over the mtn.
There is enough literature on here about the Kartel so I won't bother to expand any further. I have the 106 which is now a 108 and it ticks all of your boxes and then some. My recommendation to you sir is to read all the hype on here surrounding the ski and then try and demo a pair.
Thank me later.
