- from Colby Roberts 3 years 36 weeks agoColby, I have heard the same of the Super 7s. If you can find either ski you would do well either way. The Super 7 is a whole lot of fun in the pow. Super floaty and play full. Make sure you stay centered on both otherwise they will make you pay.
- from jack trybus 3 years 38 weeks agoJack, Another guy in CO is Greg Hoffman. Greg has been fitting boots for ages and was formerly with Green Mountain Boot Fitters at Stratton Vermont, but is now in Colorado. Gred is the gold standard by all other fitters are judged on the East Coast. As Richard indicated expertise has its costs but what are good fitting boots worth to a serious skier?
- from pat2431 3 years 37 weeks agopat2431, Dalbello is a great boot company and literally make a boot for everyone. They have Race, Rec, Women Specific, Park, and Big Mountain boots. I would probably try something from them. One of there best offerings is the Krypton Series. For warmth I would look for a model with the Intuition Liners. The Intuition Liners as a side effect of their technology have the best warmth profile.
- from 22hornet 3 years 37 weeks ago22hornet, I will tell you as a teaching professional and a "shop guy" parabolic ski are not longer around. EVERYTHING has shape in comparison to your skis of old. Technology has come a LONG way since then. It will be interesting for you since the current trend is to add "rocker" to skis which we could liken to the change from "traditional" to "shaped" skis. There will be no BEST ski, just what is best for you. You'll want to consider where and when you ski, as I am sure your "shop people" have told you. Right now manufactures are starting to show next years product to the shops for the buying season. Which mean demos will start at mountains as well soon allowing your to try before you buy. I recently got a chance to try the Rossignol Experience which is a brand new model for next year. The ski features and early rise tip (ie: rockered tip) which allows the ski to engage sooner and easier. I would recommend going to a shop you trust. They have the expert knowledge to guide you in your decision. If you don't feel comfortable in the shop move on to the next one.
- from msmillertx 3 years 39 weeks agoIt depends on your priorities. If you want more park than you can shake a stick at then you want to hit up Mount Snow with an entire peak dedicated to park action. They also have The Snow Barn for good apres. If you want apres as your priority so help me you can go to Killington with places like the Pickel Barrell and the Wobbly Barn. But be prepared to feel like a sardine in a can, everyone knows about Killington and they ALL go there.
pls rec a ski for advanced skier (former racer) for overall perf (bumps,steeps,sharp turns). high perf but forgiving as only ski 10 days/yr over last few years.from Stephen Polakoff 3 years 39 weeks agoStephen, I have use the Rossignol Avenger 82ti and love it performance. I have run it through all conditions and have yet to find a condition it doesn't like. I have run it through pow, crud, bumps, and GS course as well as along East Coast ice. The 82ti is a firm ski and will give you the great carve and race pedigree but for a more forgiving version consider the Avenger 82 Carbon
- from billiegreen 3 years 43 weeks agoBillie, Most skis today for your ability level are a integrated system, skis and binding packaged together. I might recommend looking into some of the K2 skis. They have features that will make skiing easier and more enjoyable for you. If you are on the East Coast and are in the area you might check out these guys in my backyard. They are some great folks, and everyone of them is a skier. http://www.suburbansport.com/
