First, my apologies for making another ski recommendation thread.
I am 38, 5 ft 5 in, 145 lbs.
Solid level 7 trying to get to level 8.
I mostly ski at the Lake Tahoe area around 10 days/year.
I ski mostly on piste. (80% ~ 90% on piste)
What I enjoy the most is fast long radius turns ripping through the groomers. I venture out to woods when the slopes get too crowded or the weather gets bad. I seldom do bumps.
For the past 6 years, I have been skiing on Atomic metron 9. Recently, as get faster, I felt the skis are not as stable as before. Right now I am considering Volkl AC 30 163 cm, but many of the reviews here suggest that it might be too stiff for a small guy like me.
I would welcome any suggestions.
