Hey everyone, I'm looking for suggestions for skis to check out and demo before I buy new this year. I'm a 24 year old female, 5'8" 150lbs. I ski mostly steeper blues and blacks with a growing desire to go off piste where I really struggle with my current skis. I have a pass to Sun Peaks and ski 15-20 days a year.
Im looking for an all mountain ski. I really feel like I've outgrown my Atomic Cloud 6's that I bought 4 years ago when learning to ski. I mostly ski with aggressive snowboarders and have a terrible time keeping up to them in the trees, powder, or through any rough stuff I think because the width and stability just aren't there on my skis. I've only ever ridden one other pair of skis - I demod 96mm Skevik Sevrins that are locally made in Vernon and it was the best day I had on the hill last year. I like the idea of the Skeviks being locally made but I definitely want to demo some others first.
Any suggestions? So far based on what the demo shop has, I've been looking at Salomon Lumen and Lux, and Armada arvw. If I'm way off base with these I'd like to hear it. I'd like to keep it under $1000 for skis and bindings, less if possible.
Thanks in advance!
