Help me find a playful mid size powder ski!
Trying to find a super playful powder ski that I can charge all around the mountain on that is no more than like 115 underfoot. I'm 5'11 and 150-155 pounds and want a ski that won't be super hard for me to butter. I would really like a ski similar to the surface one life's. I Love the design and features on that ski. So help me find a sick mid size pow ski and im trying to keep the prize on the lower side as well thanks! (Not about to seem 800 on skis)
Jj or jj 2.0 tons on eBay and every gear swap super fun ski
Honestly the Armada arv 106 is an insane do everything ski! I rode them yesterday and there was at least 6-10" of freshies and the ski almost rode as well as my jj zeros. so if u want a great one ski quiver id definitely recommend that ski. If you are wanting to go with a wider ski i can't say enough positive things about the JJ zero! Funnest pow ski I've ever had the privilege of owning.
Bacons, mordecais, meridians, kartel 108, kartel 116, jj's, K2 marksmans, OG shreditor 102 or 112, Nordica patrons, surface outsiders. the list is like a mile long. All of those are more so on the playful side of the spectrum. I wouldn't be shy to throw something like the bentchetlers in there or a Rossi black ops. Both are a little wider than what you said but they seem to be good skis that you could haul around the resort and still have fun on. Or you could look at a ski like the 4frnt devastator which is a bit meatier if you want to charge around the mountain with it being full rocker you can still sorta butter it.
I have only skied a handful of those skis so I can't really give you a full comment on them all but from what I have read online and from friends who ski them they seem to fit what you are looking for.
bacon, marksman, patron, peacemaker, arv106
-ON3P Kartel 108
-Armada ARV 106
-J Skis Friend
-K2 Shreditor 102

Holler if you have any questions about any of those, I have time on all of them and should be able to answer.
Lot of good options for what you're looking for
cydwhit how would you compare the ON3P to the Moment deathwish? I was just doing research to decide between them!
