I have an opportunity to get some new skis this year. The "problem" is that I don't know what I want. My current quiver that I am very happy with is
172 Dynastar Contact Limited (getting retired)
The obvious choice is to replace the Contacts which are finally worn out. I like the 72 waisted Contact and skied it all over the mountain in lots of different conditions. I would keep them if they weren't so spent. If they are getting replaced, I would like something with more beef to them. My concern with skis of this type is that as they get burlier, they get less manageable off-piste. I want them to be good on ice and fun to make quick carved turns on groomers but still be reasonable in bumps and other off-piste conditions. Most people I know don't bother with anything much under 85mm anymore. I'm thinking that I don't want any suggestions over 85mm and would like to limit suggestions to skis made by Rossignol, Dynastar, Atomic, Fischer, Salomon, and K2.
