I need advice on all-mountain skis. I am currently looking at getting a new pair of skis, because my current ones aren't really cutting it for me anymore. If you could give me some advice on your experiences with different skis, it would be greatly appreciated. I have been skiing 160cm Atomic SX:9s, but I got those 4+/- years ago, when I mainly just ripped through groomers. Over the past few years I have gotten more off-piste and spend most of my times on moguls. I live in Tennessee (so not much skiing here), but go out West one or two weeks a year, mostly to Utah (Snowbird, Alta, etc.), so I would be getting them for the West. My current skis were made as carvers and are super stiff, so they aren't great in moguls, not to mention they are terrible in powder, due to the sidecut being 65cm. I can get down just about anything I try, just powder isn't always pretty. I want something that I can use for a few years and not outgrow.
I want something I can take all over the mountain no matter the conditions. I mostly ski moguls and trees, and hopefully powder if I'm lucky enough, but I still ski with the family on groomers so I want something that can still carve relatively easy. I really like Atomic, as they have been my past 2 pair of skis, but I'm open to other things. I like the idea of twin tip or semi twin tip, just so I can goof around on the groomers with the fam. I have looked around and have found Atomic Snoop, Atomic Savage, Salomon Lord, and Volkl Bridge, but that is just from a little research. Feel free to offer other opinions.
21 years old
50% on moguls/trees
35% in powder (hopefully more fresh, most have turned into more of soft bumps than first track powder)
15% on groomers
Keep in mind that I'm just a poor college student and want something that has been out a couple of years since I can only afford to buy used.
Thanks so much for your help!
