3 pairs in active rotation for me currently... Way too many pairs that could be brought out of hibernation if needed....

The 3 active...

My powder skis....Blizzard Cochises... Full rocker, 108 underfoot, absolutely hates firm snow and short turns, such a blast on a powder day for sure!!

My daily driver... Stöckli Delta Scales, 83 underfoot with some tip rocker. Lots of fun on most anything, and if they have a top end, I haven't found it yet!!

My ice skates!! Just got them last weekend, and LOVE them on hard snow! Fischer The Curve GT. Traditional Camber, 80 underfoot, 16m radius, full world cup beefy construction. Pure carving power!

These 3 pretty much cover what I need on 99% of my ski days

2007 Head Monster m88i - as close to ice skates as I will own, carves/holds an edge extremely well.

2017 Volkl Mantra 100s - mostly every day ski, was very good in a unplanned 8" day. Stable and fun, easy to navigate.

2015 Line Sir Francis Bacon (Blue Tree top) for soft and deep days - great tree ski. Pivots and surfs well

2010? 2011? Volkl AC50 - mid 80s waist - Hard snow, carving ski
2012? 2013? Nordica Hell and Back - 98 waist - Packed powder and beyond conditions

I can't remember exact model years on the skis. I swear there were more than 2 years between them...but google seems to indicate otherwise. I feel like I've had the Volkl's much longer than the Nordica's.

Groomer only days - 2016 Head i.Supershape Speed 66mm
Every other day - 2014 Blizzard Peacemaker 104mm

I feel like I need something in the middle. I used to have Atomic Blackeye Ti 82mm but they delaminated underfoot on 1 ski a few years ago. Maybe not though because I really get a kick out of the Peacemaker when there is anything more than dust on crust. The ski is just fun even if it does throw me into the backseat a little to easily when my quads are burnt in the bumps.

When I got my iSpeeds, I really wanted that iRally. Everyone seems to love that ski.

Rossignol Soul 7's (106) - powder days or days I'll be in the trees 75% of the day
Rossignol S7's (116) - only come out for major dumps.

I would think the EXP would be more in line with the Titan as far as performance, no? Check out skiessentials.com for good deals on Mantras

After many years of skiing on old beat up stuff I treated myself this year and bought 2 brand new pairs.

2018 Head I.Titan for firm snow. Super fun ski for me. Carves great but is certainly not overly demanding. The tail is perfect, holds good but easy to dump if needed.

2019 Blizzard Rustler 9 for in between/soft snow days. Very happy with the ski. Fun playful and forgiving. Also carves really well. Rewards a neutral stance.

Powder skis are 2011 Line Prophet 115. Fun ski, only downside is they’re heavy particularly with the demo bindings I have on them.

Scott Missions will probably still get some use for spring bumps. Fun ski but a little too soft for me without metal. The rustlers are perfect for me with full metal under foot but tapering to none at the top and tail.

Enforcer 93 full time. I'm too much of a head case to be always thinking if I'm on the right ski.

2015? Dynastar 74CR Fluid skis- 74mm underfoot, in the process of becoming rock skis as I want something stiffer

2017 Fischer Pro Ti 95mm underfoot, have a lot of metal in them and they absolutely rip up everything.

I had a pair of 2016 Icelantic Keeper SKNY skis...those things were awesome but the edge blew out last year. That was going to be my rock/powder ski this year so I'm a little short-handed in the Quiver.


I want something in the high 70s/low 80s underfoot with metal construction and a tight turning radius next year as a groomers only ski. I can't do under 75mm underfoot anymore....just feels like ice skates to me and if there's even 2" of snow once things get chopped up I lose my confidence.
