Best aftermarket ski's???

I have experience with the stock ski's and C&A deep snow ski's and they worked awesome in powder and I absolutely hated them on hard pack! (I am not that big of a woosie and I could barely turn the ski's! Do not want to deal with that ever again!)

I am building a Ski Doo Xp this summer and want to put the ultimate ski's on it and I am not sure where to go. I ride in the west so we boondock, side hill, shoot hills, and have to ride the trails to and from the mtn.

Slydogs, SLP, Simmons, Ds2's, C&A, Polars pro Ski's????


HELP?


Thanks in advance fellas!

USI X2 Triple Threats! Amazing ski that is fully tunable to your liking. Also has a narrow cut tail to help initiate sidehills!

I am assuming you had a pair of our XTs which can be more difficult to steer in hard pack. We did come out with the BX skis this year which are specifically designed for boondocking/sidehilling and they keep the same width as the XTs so you will still have the great floatation in powder.

I've never tried the Grippers, but my vote goes to Mohawks, best ski I've ever had.
I have both ,grippers have VERY easy steering, softer flex by good margin , Easy ski to use, Less aggressive than Mohawks. Mohawks bottom turn a bit better since narrower shovel digs in well,Mohawks have more arm pressure due to deep keel, Both great skis with different feel.
