What's the best ski out there that combats the pushing in the corners and in deep powder with long tracks?

I have a set of dual runner Simmons on our guest '95 580 EXT 136" and made a big difference on the trail but I did notice some pushing in powder with them. My new sled is a 2003 RMK 800 Vertical Escape with the 159" and how good are the stock skis? Are they worth upgrading? How about the skis on my dad's 2003 A/C 900 MC 159"?

I hear the SLP Powder Pros are supposed to be one of the best? True?

C & A's are the best from what I hear. I guess it all depends on your riding style and how much trail riding you have to do to get to the powder but I know my next set will be C&A's

I've never heard of C&A's. Do you have a link?

C&A's are supposed to be the hot ticket for trail sleds (east coast/midwest riding) NOT powder. The Powder pros are the best if you're mainly concerned with riding off trail powder and preventing pushing in corners while the Simmons are considered best if you do both trail and powder riding (and deeper wear rods like Shapers really help Simmons and Precision concave type skis to prevent pushing).

Have Fun,

Oh, ok thanks. My dad is going to try a set of Powder pros on his 900 mountain Cat 159" because that sled pushes a lot worse than my Polaris. If his results are good I might spring for a pair myself.

AC Lover, let me know if you end up putting new skis on your sled, I may want to take the stock Sidehiller 2's off your hands.

Like I said, my dad needs them more than I do on his 900/159" Cat but if they work really well I might get a set myself, but probably not till next year for me since the powder season is coming to an end soon out here. If you would like, I could let you know if and when I buy a set of powder pros, but that probably won't be 'till late next fall and that is if I'm impressed with them on my dad's sled of course.

That's fine, because I won't be riding until next season and can't afford any more stuff for the sled until then anyways
