Howdy. I'm moving to Big Sky for the season in a few weeks and I'm currently getting all of my gear organized. I'm a midwest lad with minimal powder experience, though I'm a very strong and aggressive skier. I'll be bringing out my Faction CT 2.0's for day-to-day all mountain/ park riding, but am looking for a pair of chargers to purchase for crushing through the crud and going big on the cliffs. So far I'm scoping out the Rosingnol Black Ops 118s, but am worried they are a tad too heavy, and again I don't know much/ would love advice.
Key things I'm looking for:
- Stability. I want to know I can cut through most things in my path and will always have a solid base
- Width. Ideally these will hold their own in the powder before things get too tracked out
- Playfulness. I love twintips, popping off things, and landing switch
- Cheap-ish. They don't call it ski bumming because its affordable
