    Looking for some quiver help

    looking for a ski for when there's +8 inches of fresh snow - i had what i though was pretty good two ski quiver for weekends in Vt and once a year trip out west. i am 6' 180 lbs, 47 - ski well but i really don't have much experience in powder, i have 180 cm brahma for daily driver and BC Corvus 184 - this ski (for me) only skis well up to a couple inches of new snow - i'll readily admit that the Corvus's submarining in powder may be user error but i also think it's likely the ski. Corvus has been very good for powder days after it's cut up and choppy. I demo'd the Corvus in big sky but we didn't have any bigger dumps while i was there, it was great on wind blow and the smaller snow storms they had while i was there. But have been in Utah and Vt for a foot and a half - didn't work out so well. Probably should have bot the Atris but didn't. with all that said i'm looking for a ski for me for deeper snow. I've been considering BC Anima looks like it would be fairly point and shoot and fine after it's cut up. And the new K2 MB 115c looks like it would also fit the bill, might have to wait though. Think it would be silly to have another less that 110 under foot even if it was better in powder. Heading to Taos in a couple week and back to Big Sky in March. Any suggestion welcome.

    no one wants to help out a friendly dentist? the last dentist who asked the mogul ski question took his lumps well - turned into a nice bump skiing discussion....
