I'm in the market to buy my first set of skis, I grew up on the prairies but now that I am living near the mountains I think it is time to invest. I've been skiing since I can remember, but with where I grew up I wouldn't quite consider myself at the expert level. That being said, I love the sport and am planning on committing a lot more time to it now, so I need skis that won't become outmatched as my ability level increases.
I love to ski just about any kind of conditions, park included. Essentially I'm looking for the classic "one ski quiver", something in between 85-95 mm waist. I've always loved the feel of light, lively skis which is what led me to consider the Atomic Panic or the Salomon Lord. I was able to demo the Lords for a day last weekend at Sunshine Village, and loved them.
I'm finding it extremely difficult to locate a decent review of the Atomic Panics, has anyone here tried them? That adaptive camber technology and a smaller price sticker are intriguing. A comparison between the two skis would be awesome, but after demoing the Lords just getting a feel for the Panics would be very much appreciated as well.
Thank you and hope everyone is enjoying the winter as much as I am!
