Here are the stats: 5'9", 155lbs, 48 yrs old.
My skis have always been short turn specialists but my body can't take the beating anymore (at least not for a full day of skiing). I'm looking for new skis that will allow me to keep skiing until the lifts close. Something like 25% short turns/50%medium turns/25%long turns. Skis will be strictly for East Coast hardpack and groomers. Edge hold on hardpack is a priority. I guess I'm looking for a ski with a bigger sweet spot than a slalom ski. Suggestions on specific models and lengths that I'm likely to find for a demo would be appreciated, or at least general waist/tip/tail/length ideas. Think either slalom ski that's stable enough for higher speeds and longer turns, or a GS ski that can be turned quickly. Thanks in advance for the help
