This coming summer I'm going to buy a new ski that will hopefully be my first really nice ski. I'm 5'10" 150lbs and I would describe myself as an agressive skier. I love to take many laps in the park but at the same time I love hopping into some powder and bombing some cliff drops. The skis I have been looking at include; Rossignol S3, Rossignol S5, Atomic Access, Atomic Patent, Line Blend, Armada El Rey, Armada ARV, Volkl Bridge...These are just a few that have caught my attention. If there is any park ski that you can take into a little bit of powder every once in a while I'd love to hear about it. Just tell me what ski you think would be good for me.
Which Ski is best for me?

Honestly, check out newschoolers.com - best place to go for that sort of advice.

Aside from the ones you've mentioned, ON3P has a few really nice skis for what you're looking for - Blue Steele and JBS, I believe. Insanely well-made bombproof skis.
