Hello Fellow Skiers,
Five or Six seasons ago I posted a request for advice on this forum and ended up with a pair of Dynastar Mythic Riders. Very good advice and I've loved the skis. Now I'm looking for a new pair of skis!!
I live in Montana, ski western areas about 12-16 days per year.
I do not ski groomers unless I have to, All about steeps, powder and trees. I don't jump anything over 5 or 6 feet and I don't ski gates or need to go super fast.
I am 45 years old, 5'10" and 165 pounds.
I do not consider myself an expert skier, I ski any run on any area including chutes, trees and coulouirs. ..but I didn't start skiing til I was in highschool and my form is not beautiful. I work a lot harder than I should when it gets really steep. Not a natural fall-line beauty skier for sure.
I'm looking for your advice on a list of skis that would be a good fit. I like a more forgiving ski that will not require a huge amount of skill or force to slow down and turn.Please no super stiff rifles. I'd be interested on your advice on width.. Given that I have a job and a kid I can't chase powder days so I end up skiing a lot of crud or marginal powder days,, so a ski that can handle chunder and chatter and crap would be good too.
Thanks ahead of time for any and all advice.
Jeff in Montana
