Default Best ski for 2018 162

Not in love with the stock ski on this one. Usually ride at 11k in deep and light snow. Tends to dive when counter steering.

Thinking SLP powder pro or mohawks. Anyone have experience?

I have Mowhawks on my 155. I strongly recommend them. Best ski out there in my opinion.

Grippers are dead even in comparason as well.

I put Mohawks on my 17 mountain cat before last ride. Road about 38 miles on trail and about 1 ft of powder off trail. I was surprised how much better the Mohawks were . Highly recommend them.

Grippers are the best. and conveniently enough they are also the cheapest. I wouldn't bother with anything else myself.

Other riders have said the Powder-Pros & Mohawks can be downright dangerous in set-up/crusty snow! My vote goes to the Grippers!

I just put some grippers on. Heading to Togwotee next week. Hopefully I like them like everyone has claimed.

I didn't mind the Proclimb 7 ski, it seemed to do ok

Do those pine graphics on your hood have anything to do with your sleds attraction to trees?

I got even with this tree. After it broke the tie rod, I cut the tree down and used the top of it to link the skiis together and rode it all the way back out like this.
