Hi everyone! I'm currently skiing on a pair of Volkl AC30's which I absolutely love for ripping the groomers, ice out east, and just about anything except powder. I was recently out in CO when we got dumped on with two+ feet and my AC30 just didn't do the trick. I am a high-intermediate skier, raced throughout my childhood, but have limited experience in powder. I'm 5'11", 200 lbs and looking for a second pair for the 2-3 times/year I'm out west and happen to get a decent snowfall. Preferably, I'd like something that's versatile, that can handle the bumps, crud, trees and don't chatter too much at high speeds.
With all the new technology, I'm so confused about what I should pick up - what size, shape, etc! I will be heading out to Winter Park in 3 weeks and will have the opportunity to demo a few pairs. I guess the bottom line is I would really like to know if there is a good all-mountain ski that will give me a bit more float.
I really appreciate anyone's input/direction as my head is totally spinning with choices! Thanks!!!
