I recently moved without my skis so I'm getting a new quiver. I'm only considering Amer sport brands (Atomic, Armada, Salomon) because of discounts I get. I picked a few and would like to gather some opinions please.
I'm thinking a 3-ski quiver with the following:
1. A fun, jibbery ski: for those days when I'm staying mostly on groomers, shredding around the resort, occasional park. I like to catch some air, ski switch a lot, jib around, and ski fast. Armada ARV 86 (or should I look at the ARV 96?)
2. All round charger: ski able to handle crud, corn, packed snow, steeper terrain. Something stiffer that #1, more stable and reliable. I plan on mounting some shifts for the occasional touring as well, but I don't care that much about weight. Atomic Bent Chetler 100. (but how about a QST 106 or a Vantage 107 instead?)
3. Powder ski: For those deep powder days. Looking for something fat, floaty, a bit of fun, but also stable. Atomic Bent Chetler 120.
Edit: I'll be skiing in Utah this season (season pass at Snowbasin, and will ski other Utah resorts as well)
