I'm new this evening and in search of some advice please.
Looking to invest in a new pair of skis for the coming season and so have been looking around recently. I'm currently skiing on a pair of Salomon Pocket Rockets (175) which I love but they are old!
I'm 6', 95kg and a very competent skier both on and off the piste. I ski quickly and relatively aggressively. I spend as much of my time as possible off the piste looking for the deepest, freshest bit of powder to leave me mark on and am looking for a pair of skis that will help me push myself in this area and develop my big mountain skiing. However, I'm looking for a ski that is still going to be easily skiable and enjoyable on piste in the eventuality that I have a week of less than great snow.
Initially I looked at the Volkl Gotamas and Katanas and then started looking at the likes of the Rossignol S7, Armarda JJ and maybe the Salomon Rocker 2 (although I think this might be a bit extreme for me with it's 122mm waist).
Can anyone give me any feedback about their personal experiences with any of these skis please? Furthermore, if anybody has any other ski suggestions, please let me know.
