Would welcome recommendations for slalom skis. We do not have any previous racing experience and are advanced (but not expert) skiiers, who enjoy bumps and tree skiing in BC and Alberta.
Last year we skied about 40 days (our third year skiing) and we've skiied between 14 and 25 days the previous two years. We spend approximately half of our time skiing taking lessons (and intend to continue doing so). We can ski most ungroomed single blacks without trouble unless the conditions are awful and we struggle with big icy bumps, steep groomers when it is super icy (rarely) and when there have been dumps of extremely wet heavy snow (such as after a Pineapple Express).
This year we will aim to ski about 40 days again and will be doing race training one evening a week in addition.
These skis are likely to be used exclusively for race training, which will mostly be slalom, but might occasionally include some giant slalom.
Me: male, 145lbs, 5'11". I usually choose skis in the mid-180s length.
Skis I've enjoyed: Salomon X-Cart 24 on groomed pistes, Salomon Enduro XT-750 as all mountain-skis, Rossi Experience 88s (I liked the solid crud busting capabilities of these in particular)
Skis I've disliked: Head Rev 90 (found them 'smeary' in feel, difficult to hold edges and not solid enough at higher speeds)
Her: female, 145lbs, 5'8". Usually chooses skis in low to mid 170s length.
She quite enjoys the Salomon Rockette 90s. She found the Rossi Temptation 82s not to her liking "they felt like baby skis, not grown-up skis" and didn't like their lack of stability at higher speeds).
Thank you for your advice!
