Big Skis for Big Guys....oh the choices!
I was skulking around the ski shops today checking out the new fat skis....I mean FAT skis. I am looking for a set of fat boys for the deep days only and I need help! Too many good choices are out there so maybe someone can help me out.
I am 6'5" and about 260 lbs. I am looking for the best ski for me, for deep powder days only. My skiing style has tradionally been fast and smooth but I am hoping for something that I don't have to go mach ten on to enjoy. Still want speed of course but I want something that I can turn too.
I am interested in hearing about your experience with the Salomon Rocker, dynastar Big Dump (anybody ridden this beast yet?), Nordica Blower, and any others that I should look at?
thx pray for snow!

I think the Pow Boards are now coming in a 205cm? Lotus 138 could also be a good choice and come in a 202cm length....because warm beer is infinitely colder than no beer.

don't look past the fatypus alotta!
You're not much bigger than me, and I've loved the 180 alotta....now that there's a 190 that could be the ticket for you.

Fatypus Alotta I think could work quite well
