Anyone familiar with these skis? I am currently on an old pair of Atomic TMX - 184s. I come from an alpine racing background and tend to like a stiffer ski but would also like something a little fatter that I can take into the woods. All skiing is done at Smuggler's Notch - a mixture of inbounds and out of bounds.

Other skis I am considering are Atomic Backland, K2 Pinnacles, and Blizzard Bonafides. Any advice on ski type, width underfoot, and length would be appreciated. My ability is advanced/expert and I am 6', 175 lbs.

I was never a racer but my favorite way to tele is to lay 'em over and carve. I'm 6' 220.

I ride a pair of Blizzard Brahamas and they rip. They are absolute carving machines that perform best at speed. They require attention and really good technique or they will punish you. I love them. However, I just eliminated the Cochise from my hunt for for a wider ski because I have learned from a trusted source, a former racer that is still a really aggressive alpine skier, that 108 is too wide for what is essentially a GS race ski. I don't have the same data for the Bonafied but if there is a straight line between the Brahama and Cochise, the Bonafied is probably a pretty demanding ski that would rather be locked up in a carve than pivoting through the trees.

My 100 ish waist skis are an older pair of Atomic Theory. They are really fun in a bit of pow and kill it in the slushy chopped up spring stuff we get around here but they suck on anything harder than a nicely groomed run. They are built with the same construction as the Backland series.

I've heard good things about the Enforcer but I have never been on a pair.
