After some hours reading posts here I realized that I'm completely lost in deciding what skis would fit my needs. Obviously some advice from here would serve much better). It would be so nice if someone helps me.
I've broken my Atomic Metron B2 which I had for 7 years. When I rented Rossi Experience 88 the next day, I was absolutely shocked with the difference in performance. I think I was skiing with an idiotic smile on my face all this day) I finally learned what is carving! ) Unfortunately it became too windy the next days and I didn't have an opportunity to ski on fresh snow. Everything off-piste became hardened and icy but even when I tried in these conditions the skis were solid and gave me confidence.
But first of all I like fresh snow, powder, skiing in the trees. So this is my first priority. The second one is a versatility as I need only one pair of all purpose skis. I'm skiing mostly in European Alps, 75% off-piste (which are maybe half - fresh snow and half - everything else) and 25% - slopes. I have only a couple of weeks skiing a year, hope to increase this figure). I really don't know how advanced I am. I usually ski in a freeride group with a guide, and I'm somewhere in the middle here close to most experienced members. I like skiing fast (sometimes I force myself to go slower) and maybe a little aggressively. (This year I loaded the "Ski Tracks" app onto my mobile and it shows the history. My average max speed on the slopes was about 40 mph. Don't know if that makes sense.) I'm 5'10" height and 176 lbs weight.
Sorry for too many words,
Thanks if you've read it till this point)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
