Hello all, so I've been racing since I was little and have therefore skied pretty much exclusively on race skis. Now that I'm out of college and will be skiing more out West I think it's time for a change. While my Volkl race tigers are amazing for snapping slalom turns, I need a more all-mountain option that can handle high speed and powder. I'm a strong skier, although not very big (5' 8', 150 lbs).
Priority number one is having some skis that can make some nice carved turns at high speed and have a bit of snap to them, but I also want to have fun in the powder and trees.
Some models I've been looking at:
Blizzard Magnum 8.1 or 8.7
Nordica HR Helldiver
Any feedback/help would be appreciated.
