Ah... a tale of three skis.  I demoed the G31's last year in Beaver
Creek after years of straight skis, and loved the big, arcing turns
you could pull with ease on the shapes.  I'm a big back-bowl,
tree-bomber high speed kinda guy, and want something that'll be able
to stand up to my bashing on them...

My vital stats: 200lbs, 6'1", advanced/expert skier.. I skied the G31
at 178, which definitely felt short -- I'd be looking at all three of
these skis in a 186-188 or so.

I'd like to get opinions from people as to the characteristics of
these skis, especially the Dynastar and the Stockli, as I haven't
skied either.  Those who've ridden more than one of each would be
greatly encouraged to contribute :)

thanks much,

I've known two people that didn't like the Stormriders, and they were not
high speed skiers.
Here's some info on the skis:
