Hi all, this is my first post but I have been reading the site for a while now. I'm looking to get a pair of all mountain skis for next season while some sales are still going on. I'll be skiing mainly in Colorado. I am an advanced level skier and I love to ski all parts of the mountain; trees, steeps, bumps, POWDER and the occasional groomer. I generally ski quite aggressively. I spend about 70% of my time off piste but I love a good steep groomer for carving on as well. I am 5'10" 170, skis in the upper 170 range usually suit me best. Basically, I would love to hear any suggestions that you guys have for me. Thanks a ton for your help!!

His first post, snofun. Cut him some slack. And our search function truly really absolutely sucks anyway for broad questions like this. nsarai, welcome to Epic. There are some great threads in the Gear Review Forum, as well as some nice compact reviews on Gear Reviews, home page. In the forum, look for threads on 80-100 mm skis, crazy 88's etc. Skis like the Blizzard Bushwacker or next season's Kabookie, Elan Apex or Spire, next season's Dynastar Outbound 87, Kastle BMX98, Fischer Watea 98, Line Prophet 98 all come to mind, and there are many more. Try to think about what qualities you value in a ski, and how you would prioritize terrain. No ski made by the hand of man will be great for all missions, all skiers.
