I would really appreciate your advice on which skis to pick for the next couple of seasons. I am a pretty good skier (not expert), I am 75 inch and 198 lbs. I usually ski on groomed runs (carving) as I am from and ski in Europe where we have less powder than US/CAN, but I also really like off-piste (powder if any available, trees, etc.) -
For the last 2 years I have been skiing on ELAN Magfire 82xti, which I really liked! The only "minuses" where the weight of the ski (when carried) and the fact that you could not cheat on it on steeper slopes in the afternoon :), but on the other hand they were really great in bad conditions e.g. wet snow, bumps, etc...
Now, I am looking at the following options:
1.) Blizard Magnum 8.1
2.) Atomic Blackeye Ti
3.) Volkl RTM 84 (but they are the most expensive of first 3)
4.) Fisher Progressor 800 (really good deal, good tests, but I am little affraid they will not do the powder nice as they are thinner)
5.) Elan Waveflex 82 Amphibio xti
Thank you for your tips! As I only have 1 pair of skis at the time and I like carving and off-piste, I have to find a good all-around ski for the good value.
