Replying to BC Camox vs ARV96 TI
So this post could spiral out of control into a myriad of questions but:
Anyone used these recently, or any advice on either ski. Read a few posts comparing mid fat twins but these 2 don’t seemed to get compared too often as I think they’re marketed at different people but on paper they seem pretty similar, to me anyway (and made in the same factory)
Looking for something I can charge the whole mountain, Park —> Backcountry. These will probably be my daily driver, more side hits than boxes though.
I have Edollos (172) as a pure park set up, but they feel a bit soft in icy side piste when I’m sniffing around for a bit of fun in there. So I figure a stiffer, slightly more directional ski will cure my pangs for something sendier in tougher conditions & that I can basically go anywhere on. 96 underfoot is a bit of a sweet spot for me, it’s a width that just seems to work, secure landings, floaty and I can get on edge - what more could you want?
Has anyone toured with either as I might put a shift on them?
Also has anyone used a shift in the park?
Not sure if going too versatile will ruin it?
Happy if anyone has any other suggestions that could fit the bill?
Bit about me, old, overweight and not as good at this as I think I am.
173 tall, about 90kg so probably looking 170 Arv or 174 Camox
Ski in Europe - Germany/Austria and dabble in Switzerland.
Instructor standard on groomers, enthusiastic intermediate off piste/backcountry
absolute tourist in the park but I love it!
