Just wanted to get someone's opinion, since I'm not able to go to store at the moment and am debating buying Atomic Affinity Pure skis online.
The problem is, I've found mixed descriptions on different websites. Some say that it's for strong intermediate skiers, some say it's for advanced and some even say that it's a beginner ski. For some reason I really set my eyes on it and even found a pretty good pair on sale but I'm worried it they just may be too soft for me?
I'm a 19 year old girl, height- 169cm, weight-65kg. I've been skiing every winter since I was 8 or 9 so I'd say that I have a pretty good technique, I almost always stay on groomed slopes (I basically ski on powder only when it hasn't been groomed yet after a night of snowfall) and I do not like skiing exceptionally fast. I make a lot of carving turn- I like to kinda go on a moderate speed and enjoy myself. I'm comfortable on black slopes. Not sure what level can that be considered as, I'm guessing a strong intermediate, maybe advanced?
So, do you think 160cm Atomic Affinity Pures will be a good match for me?I'm kind of hoping that it is, the price is great and I fell in love with the design too :D But I can't got to the store right now, and plus I'm thinking if I went to different stores I'd get different opinions, just like from the websites.
Thank you for your help!
Best wishes, Tamta
edit: currently I own Salomon aeromax S I believe, it was a gift back in 2010 so not much thought went into that one , and now I feel I need something more. Would the Atomics be a good upgrade to that?
