Hey guys. Been out of the game for a while with buying skis. Moved out west, going to be skiing Colorado and New Mexico area. Typically will go when conditions are nice, so fresh snow or packed powder. I like to do it all. Pow, trees, jib around, lap some jumps in the park, rip some groomers, etc. Not going to be doing any hiking, will be all resort stuff. Ideally would like something I could mount around -2.5 from center, light enough to throw around and be fun, but stable enough that I can still enjoy normal slopes.
I’m 5’ 11”, 170lbs.
Thinking Armada JJ 116 or Bentchetler 120. I used to have a pair of Bentchetlers back in the day and skied them almost everyday on the east coast. Was fun but honestly it’s been so long I almost forget what it was like to ski them.
I skied some 180 Rossi Sky7’s recently. Had a blast carving hard on packed powered slopes. Held an edge fantastically. However, they felt a little awkward in the air and heavy.
Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
