Hey all, looking for an all-mountain ski for more crud/on-piste conditions, seeing as i've just picked up a set of Magic J's for deep days. In saying that, i don't want to have to whip out the J's every time theres a few inches of fresh snow - and need a ski that can handle some softer conditions as well. Don't want another ski that is too wide and have nothing on the narrower side either.
LOCATION: Australia (+trips to Canada & Japan over the next couple of years)
HEIGHT/AGE/WEIGHT: 5'9 / 165lb
ABILITY LEVEL: 3 mountain / 1 park
BUDGET: ON3P and other US made brands are way too expensive in Australia.
WHAT KIND OF SKI DO YOU WANT: All-mountain skis mainly for crud, hitting natural terrain, and progressing in the park - but also able to handle some soft snow.
CONTENDERS: ARV 96 / ARV 96ti ZERO / Edollo / BDog / Other suggestions?
Chosen these based on their widths, which i'm hoping will be enough for some soft snow, but not too wide to hold an edge. Fairly sure theres not much difference between them in-terms of shape, so its down to the flex pattern. I have no idea whether to choose a stiffer ski (96ti Zero) or softer ski (Edollo) and need to put the decision to bed.
