I've gotten back to skiing this winter after more than 10 years away from the sport. I'd like to try out, and probably buy, shaped skis. (My straight skis date from about 1994.) I'd love some recommendations about which skis are most likely to suit me, as I don't have the time to demo more than a few.
Here are the seemingly appropriate women's skis that I can demo at mountain moderately nearby:
Atomic Cloud 9
Head Mya no. 5
Nordica Belle TO Belle
Nordica Cinnamon Girl
Nordica Wild Belle
Rossignol Temptation 74
Rossignol Temptation 78
Salomon BBR Skylight
Salomon Origins Lagoon
Looking up various reviews, I start to get analysis paralysis, so I'd love to get some opinions on where to focus my attention.
Here's the info on me:
Located in Boston suburbs skiing mainly MA and NH, with some VT and ME, so New England conditions all the way. I ski groomed intermediate and advanced trails. I don't like mogul skiing. I ski about 12 days a winter. I'd rate my ability as between "advanced intermediate" and "advanced". (A trail that I enjoy at the upper end of my abilities is Obsession at Sunday River in ME. Double black diamond trails at big mountains are above my level.) I'm 5'6", 145 lbs, and female.
Thank you in advance for your help!
