Im 5’10 185lbs live in Montreal. Ski all over east hunting snow from mad river to Le massif.
I’m an advanced intermediate? I ski every run. Harder the better. Not necessarily with expert precision
I ski 70% in trees and bumps. Like steep and challenging. Blacks double blacks. I like to jump of natural features but have no park experience. When I do, I like to rip groomers as fast as possible. I’m pretty athletic and fearless but need to improve technique.
I own Rossi pursuit 800 for hard/Icey in a 177cm I find slightly long but grip like hell
J skis the metal 180 for pow days. They are my first wide soft flex. Love these skis!
*Rossi experience 88 hd 180* I want to replace. Great ski but hard to turn in what I like. Too Heavy and stiff
I’m looking for a 85-90mm daily for up to 4” days but honestly Usually will be less. Something like the metals. Quick turning, nimble, playful something I can ski in trees and bumps but frontier as well. I don’t need them to be super locked in for groomers as I have the pursuits
I’ve set apart by what I see as comparable:
Navigator 85 vs bushwhacker; Light snappy skis with frontside in mind
K2 pinnacle 88 vs Salomon qst 92; playful mid range with versatility up to 6/8” snow?
More park: (not opposed to adding with one of above)
Nordica soul rider; sound similar to the metals but narrower (I like what I’ve read)
Armada arv 86; too soft for crud?
Armada Invictus 89ti

I love your comments and review and have been studying them while locked in quarantine. Not happy the season ended like it did. Le massif just got hit with another 10” in April!
stay safe everybody. Until next season!
