Hey, I'm a new member here and have spent some time reading through the forums but obviously could have missed some of the posts so please forgive if some of these questions are repeats. Anyways I'm 6' ~180lbs and a level 7-8 aggressive skier . I live on the east coast and probably ski 20 times a year here and then make about one trip a year to ski out west (usually for about 7 days) and I'm currently looking for a ski that could handle both the the snow in the east (50/50 of groomed runs and not and with some bumps and occasionally trees) and then also handle bowls out west such as at snowbird. So far I have roughly narrowed it down to Stockli Stormrider VXL or XXL, Volkl Kendo, Dynastar Sultan 85, Elan Apex, or a Fisher Motive 84 but am certainly open to other ideas. I know thats not so narrowed down but thats why i'm asking. Also, after what i've read here I understand that a perfect combo may not exist but I would like to be able to use my own skis in both places, but with a weighting towards the east coast as i will be doing the majority of my skiing there. Also, any advice on bindings would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for the long post and thank you for any help!
