I found this site about a week ago after some googling. Stalked the threads a bit and I think this is a great forum for ski-fanatics. I was wondering if you guys could help me pick out a ski:
I'm a 5'7, 165 pound guy that has been skiing for about 10 years now. For the last five-or-so I have been using 156cm Tiger Volkl but now that I consider myself an advanced skier, I would like to upgrade. Once or twice a year I go up North (Tremblant, Jay Peak, Killington, etc) and the rest of the time I just cruise around the anthills in Poconos. I like an adrenaline rush so I like to go fast, ski just about everything, and sometimes hit up the glades. Not always perfect, but always good enough to be fun.
My ideal ski: 165cm-175cm in length. MUST be twin-tip as I want to dedicate my 'anthill time' to learning basic jumps and rails. All-around mountain ski preferred which does well for advanced, aggressive skiing and allows me to better my moguls. Strong preference if it can somewhat survive on powdery runs.
The idea is that I'll mostly be learning some new tricks and flying on groomed runs but I don't like sinking once or twice a year when I go off-trail on my trips. As an idea, I am looking into the 2012 K2 Kung Fujas. I know there is no such thing as a one-ski quiver but any help/advice is appreciated. Thank you very much in advance!
