I've been skiing on tmx's almost exclusively last season in colorado, and i'm looking for a ski a little more forgiving (less stiff) than the atomic tmx's. I was thinking about going with an even fatter ski, but now that i've moved up to the Mt. Hood area i'm not so sure that is the best option. I'm going to keep the tmx's as my backcountry setup, so i'm just looking for a resort ski. I've skiied the super stinx's, and they seem too flexible, so perhaps somewhere in the middle. Jacks perhaps? Volkyl? I like the idea of the hippies, but they seem like overkill here in the PNW. Can you convince me otherwise? Agressive, but skiis that wont kick the living crap out of me at the end of the day like the atomic's do. Thanks a bunch all, see you on the hill. 6'0", 170, T1's, G3's.

Skis TM:X with G3 T9's and T1's. It's a pretty light setup but your right - the TM:X feels quite stiff. Never thought this is a prob on piste though, but sometimes in the bc they just cut to much through the snow and lack a little float. On piste you maybe miss a little more sidecut - at least for short-turns. But for speed and long turns I find them nice.
Bought them for bc use last season and will give them this season to find out more about how they behave best in crap snowconditions which we often have up here. After a more or less waisted season on the Yostmarks I am scared of too soft skis, so I stick with the tm:x's for a while.
