Hello! I'm hoping that some of the knowledgeable folks on here might be able to help me select a few skis to demo this coming season. About me: 25, 5'7", 150, athletic, advanced but not expert skier who gets to enjoy 16-21 days a year in the mountains. I currently ski (and love, for nearly all eastern conditions) the Atomic Blackeye Ti at 167. Things I enjoy about my Atomics are their edge grip - they seem happier the harder the snow gets - and their easygoing personality. I've been making it out to Colorado more and more recently, including Winter Park / Mary Jane this past year (which was a great time, especially over on MJ). Since I may be moving out West for work soon, I was hoping to use my next trip out to WP / MJ this coming season to demo some western all-mountain skis. Ideally, I see myself skiing about 50% on groomers and 50% in the bowls / trees at a mountain like WP / MJ.
What would be 3-5 skis you recommend I try, and in what length? Why do you recommend them? I'm looking for a great Mary Jane ski! Thanks in advance.
EDIT: My Blackeyes were fantastic on the groomers out west, so I'm open-minded to the idea of a ski that compliments, rather than replaces my Atomics when I am out west and want to spend more of the day in the trees or bowls.
