It was probably time a few years ago but now they feel dead :(
It's been a while since I shopped for skis and I'm at a loss. You all helped me pick my fischers which I loved but I'm thinking about trying some skis a little wider underfoot - but I like the tight turn radius.
Right now I'm shopping on paper so come November I can take my list to the mountain and demo away! I ski VT mostly with an annual (or thereabouts) trip somewhere fun. I think this year is UTAH!
I'm 5'2". I've never been fond of women's skis - I always felt they were just too light.
I'll ski anything but mostly piste (not much off piste in southern VT). I love the moguls but I'm not great at them. I've been skiing for 28 years and consider myself at least advanced if not expert. I've always liked the skis that seem to POP from side to side but as I get older I'm thinking maybe a cruiser - that still performs well in the bumps would suit me.
Here's my list (I'll update if you all can suggest others):
Line - Celebrity 90 (although I've read some reviews that said kids were skiing them so I'm not sure about that)
Atomic Blackeye Ti (my husband has these but I think they'll be way too heavy but worth a freebie try)
Blizzard viva 8.1 (and maybe 7.6)
Dynastar Eden 85
