i really like my 2014 Gotamas. theyre about 65/35 pow/piste, kind of an off piste leaning all mountain twin. theyre a dream to ride in Coppers back bowls, and handle themselves very well on the front side as well.

Kind of a useless question without knowing where/what kind of conditions you ski, how much you weigh, how skilled you are, etc.  Gotamas will suit one person, Rossi S3s will suit another and the person who hates one will love the other.  Interesting that you're doing a poll with your first post here, ever.  Kind of cheeky, no?  Be glad you didn't post this on TGR.

mike m, makes a good point.  if you're talking all mountain use, I enjoyed the hell outta the Nordica soul rider I used to ski.

I liked my Pocket Rockets.  I'm sure you could find some really cheap.

Hmmm. Title does not match the content. Do you walk to school or do you carry your lunch? What are you asking...lerts see about changing the title or the content.

I have a pair of Scott Punishers but really don't exploit the full use they were originally designed for. They are very easy to ski in most all conditions outside of boiler plate and high speed downhill.

To the previous post, I had to walk to school since the wheel had not been invented and we had to eat any animals we caught rather than use them for transport.

80 mm waist older K2 PEs are mu favorite for park jumps and stuff.  Most of my active skis are twins to some degree though.

Based on the information you gave, I would definitely say the red ones.  :)

Elan Pogo Holmes.

If you find any used they're not worth the paper it takes to print a ski swap slip.

'Coz every other owner I've ever met has had at least 80-90 days on theirs.  
On roots, on rocks, on coral reef, on kickers, in bumps. 

 

2nd choice:   Stockli Stormrider TT (188 cm)

 

3rd choice:  Seth Pistols.

My twin tips now are k2s, but they are in such bad condition I cant even see the name anymore. I Want a light ski to use a as good freestyle ski and one to just ride down the average ski resort trails. In my area, there is only Ski resort type mountains, nothing interesting. I don't know if it matters but I can wax them easily. Also don't know if it matters that the hardest trails they will see are Double or Triple Black diamonds. That's the hardest(and most fun) trails in my area, even though they are still really easy. If someone wants to actually ask me a question the I will answer any specifics. If I sound like I don't know what I am talking about, its because I don't. I've only had 6 pairs of skis in my life, and I only get paid 10$ an hour, so I cant exactly buy out every pair and get a pass to every mountain. For the help, thanks. I am mainly a slalom and GS racer- and slalom is my better race. I was on a good ski team last year but I do not have time for that kind of commitment anymore so I joined a team that only practices together once a week and races 1-2 times a week. I am going to target my year to doing freestyle skiing, and just getting to all the mountains and skiing every trail. Thanks.

Considering there is only one mountain anywhere in Vermont that has a "triple" black diamond, I'm going to assume you're skiing at Smuggs? And really, trail ratings mean nothing. A double black at Okemo is a blue at Mad River Glen. You want to ski freestyle? So the park? 

 

If you want to know what the best ski is for you, you need to try out skis. Commenting from the internet isn't going to lead you to the right choice. Talking to an old dude in the shop, and trying out skis on snow will make your decision. Do as much demoing as you can, then buy your favorite.
