In search of the perfect east coast ski
Title pretty much explains it, I'm looking for a do it all ski for the east. Mostly just trying to rip around groomers, I've got honey badgers for in the park. About 6 foot tall and 140 pounds, intermediate skier.
I’m enjoying my ARV 106. You check those jawns out yet?
I don't believe it can be narrowed down to one particular ski. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to flex, dampness / liveliness, sidecut, camber / rocker profiles, etc. And there are so many options out there now as well. The perfect east coast ski is the one you buy from your local shop, or from a company that supports what you like.
That being said, I've really been enjoying my Libtec UFO 100's and am definitely considering the UFO 105 to replace them. Or the Kook Stick.

Really depends on how, what, where and what you like in a ski. I personally love the Jeffrey 96s as a daily driver east coast ski performs in just about an condition you’ll see on the east coast and is a blast to ski.
Thanks for the ideas, I'll try to hit up some demo days and see what I can get my hands on.
