New Skis To Complement Bonafides
Hey everyone, I've recently been looking for a new pair of skis to go with my Blizzard Bonafides that will be softer and more playful. Specifically, I'm looking for a ski that will be used for jibbing around the mountain, trees, bumps, and some steep chutes in that order. I've been demoing some skis lately, and the best one I've been on has been the Blizzard Peacemaker. However, my one complaint with them is that they always wanted me to be on edge, turning and carving. So, what would you guys recommend? I want a less edge grabby ski in the same vein as the Peacemaker, somewhere in the 100-110mm width range. For reference, I also really liked the Icelantic Pioneer 109's, but found that they were not nearly as fun (or balanced) in the air as the peacemakers. Twin tip would be preferred, but is not a deal breaker, and I will be skiing at resorts in Colorado.
^Kartel 108s as said above
Black Crows Atris
Caravan SB 100 (Haven't heard much but they look cool)
Icelantic Nomad 105
All times are Eastern (-5)
