Please help me decide on some skis
Hello my name is Huey I’m 20, love in the PNW and ski 1-2 times a week at Schweitzer mtn in Idaho. I’m level 3 skier I’ve ridden line Blends, magnus 102’s (and JJ 116’s for a few hours today). I’ve been into park the last few years but have really been transitioning to mainly trees, cliffs, and a little bit of back country. I want a ski that can do really well in those areas but still be tolerable on the front side of the mtn as well. I really loved how the JJ’s could stomp through crud effortlessly it was amazing compared to park skis, who would have thought? With that being said I want 1 ski to do it all so of course I’ve looked into bent chetler 100’s but the 116 underfoot of the JJ’s has me wondering what would be best. 116 felt a little big to be a do it all ski. I’ve also been looking at Black crows atris and Armada Arv 106. Wondering if anyone thinks any of these would be a great idea or others not mentioned? Thanks for your help!
