I’m currently riding on 13/14 Jmos in 176 that have served me well for 7 years now. They do great on just about everything. My only complaints are that I experience the occasional chatter on hard pack at speed and occasionally get caught up with them in tight trees and bumps. The skis have been excellent though with usage everywhere and super robust. Definitely plan to keep using them as well.
I’m considering a few options:
Blizzard Rustler 9
ON3P Woodsman 96
Elan Ripstick 96
Liberty Origin 96
Dynastar Menace 98
Open to any others as well, right now I’m leaning strongest towards the ON3Ps. I’m also looking at Tyrolla 13 bindings, currently have Tyrolla 16 but I think they’re a bit more than I need.
About me: I like to ski pretty aggressively on the east coast especially on the hard pack and spend time in the woods when possible. I’m 24 y/o, 5’7” and 135lbs. Home mountain is Mount Snow where a lot of the glades are very tight.
