Wanted..Powder Ski

 Poster: A snowHead

I will double post what follows here for advice and in Buy/Sell etc in the hope that somebody has something to offer for sale.

Perhaps I am after something that does not really exist...but here goes:

Male
85kg
5ft10in
Good skier, but not yet expert. I can ski pretty much anything (except proper narrow and steep couloirs).

I want an off piste ski that is still competent on piste, it doesn't have to be great...but competent at least.
Turn radius of no more than 20m...that really is the max.

Underfoot? "Enough" but no absolute upper or lower limit.

They key, key criteria is turnability. I want an easy to turn ski, that is MUCH more important to me than a big arching turn charging ski.

To be used in Verbier whenever there is enough snow and for bi-annual Japan trip.

Feel free to suggest something that is not necessarily a 2017 ski because that might be find-able too, and cheaper.

@rungsp, you’re welcome to try my DPS Wailer 112’s. 184 but easy to ski. They just became redundant 😉. They’re in the locker at the apartment if you want to have a try.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

There’s also Millsy’s ex-rental 178´s in there that you can compare with. They are a bit long for her so available for cheap. Same construction as mine but blue colour

Icelantic Nomad 168, vgc very easy to ski on or off piste. Almost new Salomon STH 13 for 327 boot. Looking for £100

Don’t worry about the short length as they are fully cambered and short radius so easy to turn and plenty of float in the deep stuff.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

I appreciate the offer @BertieG, but I am quite sure they are too short for what I want.

Rossi Super 7 sounds like it was made for you. Sallie QST 118 too.

agree about the super 7 but perhaps worth saying that radius is not a good predictor of "turnability" in this kind of ski simply because it is rare that you carve them, mainly about pivot and drift. For example my redeemers are extremely nimble in the trees.

That said, I think radius does matter for piste performance which @rungsp's does care about.

Nordica Enforcer 185/100. Very turnable, very powerful on piste, plenty of float, Radius 18.5. Demo'd a few days ago, thought they were epic and will be upgrading my HnB's this year to them I think. My skier profile and yours are somewhat similar....

The Enforcers are unquestionably brilliant and some of my favourite skis... but they're not powder skis and really don't match what the OP's asking for (IMHO)
