    Advice on a Pow ski? Have one to sell/trade?

    Howdy all. I'm looking to get a new Pow ski and could use a little advice.
    I ski mainly in Taos where we've got steeps, some open bowls, a lot of tight chutes, moderately narrow trees, with a lot of groomers in-between.
    I'm 5' 9" and 140 lbs. I'm looking for a pow ski that can carve groomers without feeling like a floppy noodle, that's stiff enough to charge crud and take 15 ft drops, but that's still playful pow. Thinking about a Moment Bibby Pro 186, Atomic Automatic, PM Gear, S7. Any suggestions or tips on skis for sale greatly appreciated.

    sounds like you should check out the Movement Goliath that i'm selling here: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/s...n-a-65MPH-SALE!

    a do it all mid-fat that's a crud-crushing, pow-floating, groomer carving machine.

    Selling some like new, 184cm Moment Deathwishes....great 1 ski quiver. Floats me fine at 175lbs.

    If you want to save dough, buy them flat and I will sell the FKS bindings separate.

    Not as stiff as some skis....it it is a 7/10 = a playful ski that can charge a bit (vs a charger that is playful....ie old Bibby which is 8/10 in stiffness) .....you will be fine though at 140 lbs. Search in Gear Swap.

    Buy my nearly new 186 Atomic Automatics

    Popular, playful pow ski that can also carve on the groomers. Good in tight spots.

    I've also got some Atomic Tracker 13s for sale (size L) that could be mounted on these. Mount +1.5 or so for a more playful ski and more tail for landings.

    Hard to say without pics of your girlfriend, but I would stay out of the 190's range.

    Taos has LOTS of tight spots, and less big open ripping turn areas than many ski areas. I think, at your weight and height, you would appreciate a more manageable size ski.

    My advice would be to look for something 186 and shorter, with decent rocker so it does not feel too huge in those tight chutes and trees. Probably something on the lighter slightly more flexible side of the spectrum as well. Grab some different sticks when you want to ride the groomers!

    I think a rossi soul 7 in 180 would be a great option for you, if you can get a deal on them. Probly not going to find a used pair yet...

    Or, for the right price, I would consider parting with my beloved 178 Rossi RC112s. Which sound like EXACTLY what you want. 112 under foot, Charges like a bigger ski, busts crud like a champ, generous tip rocker, serious camber under foot, and not too much sidecut (one thing i dont care for on the older generation s7).

    I’ve got some 173 Icelantic Shamans with two mounts I’d sell for pretty cheap. They’re designed to ski much longer than they are.
