Rossignol: S6 Koopman Alpine Ski (Men's Skis)
If your day begins with two feet of pow and ends in choppy, crusty crud, bring out the Rossignol S6 Koopman to float the morning and crush the afternoon.
Sage Cattabriga-Alosa Review:
I am really into skiing, but I also am very into art, so when Rossignol decided to collaborate with seven artists to design their new graphics I was super excited. My favorite design this year is by Caia Koopman and it’s on the S6. The S6 picks up were the Steeze left off, and it is the perfect tool if you like powder, jumps, skiing fast, and getting creative on the mountain. This ski shines in nearly all aspects of skiing, carves on the groomer and through the chop. It floats great in the deep and stomps smooth whether you’re landing forward or back.

I demoed s5's a month ago. I am heading back to utah for one last fling. I loved the s5's. not as carvable on hard pack and a lil moreslip on icey, but floated much better than what I am use to. Coming off atomic moetron 10. Very stiff no forgiveness. I liked the s5's softer flex and actually enjoyed the bumps for a change. I did find my self in back seat alot in deeper pow though. I am 5'10 and 215lbs. I ski rather aggressively III+. I am looking for input on other skis and want to purchase something for when I am west and use metron's on vt's ice...
I like to hit the gladesand trees, off the beaten path most of the day, but do like to rip down the groomers when heading back to lifts. The s5 was my first wide and twin tip ski (178, also longest ski i have skied), I don't do much park or pipe, but do hit rock/cmall cliff drops but was very impressed with the maneuverability(sp?).
Skis I have read about and I am interested in:

I'm going to pick up a pair of the S6 Koopmans in a 174 length to fulfill my need for all-mountain powder/crud versatility with a bias towards quick turns (think tree skiing). I'm looking for recommendations on where I should mount the bindings. Thanks for the help.
