Since 2006, the AC3 has been my go to ski. In fact, until I got my S7s two years ago and a used set of SL race skis last year, they were my only skis. I'm looking to replace them with something that slots nicely in the middle. They still ski like they were intended to, but they are SO heavy, I'm growing tired of them. I'd like something a little more lively, still stable at speed, but it doesn't have to be bullet-proof like the AC3, and more compliant in the bumps. My AC3s are 170s. I'm 5'11", 170lbs. I'm considering a Blizzard Magnum 7.6 in 170 or 177. Basically it is a similar ski, but with no metal. I'm also considering a Nordica Sidecountry Burner in 178. Anyone skied either or both of these and have any input. I want a springy, not overly demanding ski that will do OK in the bumps, OK in GS turns and OK in trees. Thoughts?
