Experience 86 TI
Gear Buddy Opinion
The Experience series was designed with all mountain skiing in mind. These skis are made to bring you into any terrain that you desire while skiing the resort. The 86 is the widest in the line and is a great option for charging anywhere.
I hopped on these last spring and right away could tell this would be my teaching ski for the next several years. As a ski instructor at Vail, I've tried all of the Experience line over the years. I tried a few 80-90 waist Salomon and Volkl skis last year and was very unimpressed with all of them. This thing is extremely smooth, energetic and powerful without being overwhelming. You can make varied turns easily but also be very comfortable at speed. They also initiate a turn and come back out of it without getting hung up very very well. I'll definitely be recommending these to my clients this season!
