Hi Simon, sounds like the the 176cm Declivity would be perfect for you. Ripping all-mountain ski with the metal backbone while being lightweight and lively in the Backcountry thanks to the ultralight core and rocker nose profile. Check out the Backcountry.com video, Kipp is Sending it...

Hi Zack,
TST is an awesome choice for an all mountain ski that ready to shred all snow conditions. IT's very light weight making it extremely playful in deep snow and nimble through tight trees.
The other Ski that I would recommend for a little more stability at high speeds on hardpack days would be the ARMADA ARVti. Skied these all last season and they are incredible. 99 mm waist with a little bit of early rise gives you plenty of float for the deep stuff then add two sheets of metal for stability at insane speeds. Not to mention they're built by ARMADA, the best thing to happen to skiing since the one-piece. Check them out:

Hi Armen, Jp mounts his right on the factory recommended line @ 5 back on the 185cm model and he designed the ski. Also freeski athletes like Tanner & Jacob run theirs right off the line as well. Have seen some athletes push the mount forward to 3.5 back but they definitely sacrifice all-mountain performance and are generally just using them for backcountry booters. The JJ is my fovorite ski ever, hands down, and I always ran them on the line...

Look no further, the TST sounds like the perfect ski for you. With the vertical sidewall construction under foot the TST will tip and rip in the hardest of conditions. Definitely would not worry about squishing the juice out of these bad boys. ARMADA athlete JP Auclair is about your same size and skis the TST 183 as his all-mountain ride and Chamonix as his home mountain, the 192 will be plenty burly. Not to mention the killer nose rocker all out POWDER shredding...

JJ is still the king of all-mountain powder skis, it's the most versatile and playfull ride I've ever clicked into. Have rode the new Soul 7 and feel it's more of a directional ski than the JJ which is really balanced tip to tail and has more of a freeride feel. If you are looking for something new, I would check out the ARMADA Norwalk. The Norwalk has the same waist and rocker profile as the JJ in the Nose with a positive camber tail for all-mountain dominance.

Hello alexpop100138779,
The recommended mounting spot for the ARVti for all mountain skiing is -5 back of center. They also have a secondary mounting point at -2.5 back of center that makes the ski a little more playful and forgiving for switch skiing.
To answer your question. Yes, Armada park athletes like Henrik Harlaut are mounting these dead center for all out park skiing and absolutely love it.

Hi Matthew,
Both the JJ and Norwalk are amazing all-around Powder skis so I can see why it's tough to decide between the two! The main difference between these two models is the tail shape and rocker profile giving them each unique characteristics. The JJ has Armada's freeride rocker profile with rocker in the tip and tail and early taper giving it a loose and surfy feel. While the Norwalk has rocker / taper in the nose it has a solid traditional positive camber twin-tip tail, this gives the Norwalk a longer running length and a more powerful feel through the turn.
For more info I'd definitely chat with one of the backcountry gear heads like Carver had mentioned above to help make the right choice...

The Al Dente is the most playful ski I've ever clicked into! They have so much life with the carbon stringers through the tails you can pop like never before. Add some nose rocker up front and you're ready to butter any and everything on the mountain, it's just way too much fun!

The ARMADA ALPHA X has a inflated waist this year making it a whole new beast. Now with a 95mm waist and park rocker the Alpha X is ready for business both in and out the park. The rockered shape makes the ski really playful while the tapering in the tip and tail lessons the swing weight drastically. Also, I could really notice the race base in the spring when the conditions got slow, had no problem with speed while others were struggling to clear knuckle.

The Norwalk is a true Big-Mountain workhorse that performs phenomenally all over the mountain. The ARMADA all-mountain rocker gives the Norwalk a solid platform for charging on hardpack and variable conditions while the rocker / early taper in the nose gives it ample rise and float in deep snow conditions. The tip profile also loosens up the front of the ski just enough to help it through tight situations without sacrificing stability at high speeds. I found them light enough for big touring missions and burly enough for everyday resort Shredding...

My All-TIME favorite powder ski EVER! With full Powder rocker and taper with a touch of camber and sidecut under foot, these things straight-up destroy backcountry lines. The mass of the ski if focused underfoot giving them virtually ZERO swing weight making the pivot from edge to edge effortless. You can surf a turn for 300 feet on a big face or snap turns through pillow lines with a whole new level of confidence! The BUBBA is a total GAME-CHANGER...

The TST makes an incredible touring ski, nice and light for climbing with an aggressive alpine backbone. The early rise and taper in the nose makes it extremely stable at speed in variable conitions and positive camber through the tail gives you a great platform for skinning. I think it's everything you're looking for...
