Im starting to look around for skis for next season and I wanted to start a thread now so I can gather some ideas.
My current skis: 2016 Chronics I bought as beaters to get me through the season. What I like: fun to ski, lightweight, poppy, stable. What I don’t: durability blows (topsheet chipping/delam), could be easier to butter.
About me as a skier: 5’11”. 168 lbs. 80% park, 20% all mountain. I have designated powder skis so I don’t really care about that. Intermediate skier, 270s, swaps, 450s; 3,5,7s with grabs. Getting into corks/Misty’s
Basic ideas of what I want: stable, poppy, durable (don’t flame me for saying this. They just have to be able to take some abuse), somewhat butterable, 90-100 underfoot. Somewhat lightweight, I know that’s a rabbit whole. Not a noodle. Playful and fun to mess around on. 175-185 cm
Skis I’m considering: Jeffery 96, Twall Pro, Poacher, older Chronics (pre 2019), Magnus 90, Edollo
Let me know what you recommend!
