1. Where in the world are you skiing?
North America, typically big mountain out west but ski 10 or so choice (read: powder) days here in Ontario. Few days at Jay each year as well.
2. What kinds of terrain do you prefer (groomed runs, moguls, race course, park'n'pipe, trees, steeps, backcountry/sidecountry)?
Steeps, trees, sidecountry, big alpine bowls and chutes. Will venture into bump runs from time to time.
3. How many days a year do you ski?
30 or so.
4. How advanced are you as a skier?
Aspiring expert. Can handle myself in more or less any terrain, don't exactly charge as hard as the true experts. Big airs and really exposed (no fall zones) terrain are my achilles heel right now.
5. What's your height and weight?
6'0, 175lb. Somewhat better than average fitness. (gym regular, MTB in summer for cardio)
Basically, i'm looking for something similar to my existing daily driver the Rossignol Scimitar. I really like it's easy of use, somewhat lightweight character, yet stable and able to bust through crud. I also like being able to smear out the tails in tight trees, so something with full reverse camber seems to be what i'm looking for. A little wider than the 98 underfoot is okay, but lets say not much more than 110mm under foot.
Skis i'm considering:
PMGear Bro (full reverse camber version)
Bonafide (flipcore, but close enough to reverse camber)
Anything else I should be considering, or one from that list that jumps out at you? Really leaning towards the new Mantra; have had good success with Volkl in the past.
