Recommendations for new tele skis to replace my old World Pistes (Female, 130 pounds)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I have skied a 167 World Piste (and loved them) for around 8 years. Time for new skis. I ski Copper and Mary Jane mostly and am typically on black diamonds, bumps and tree runs and some double blacks. I go into the back country only occasionally but am pretty adventurous.

 

I demoed the K2 Potion 90 a couple of weeks ago and it was fine. I'm am also looking at SkiLogiks, the Isis TT and maybe the Goddess TT. Isis has a similar cut to the Potion 90 and I am a little nervous the Goddess is too wide underfoot (101) for a one-quiver ski. Can't find anywhere I can demo the Isis or Goddess. :(

 

I used to live in the Vail Valley and skied Tele Tuesdays at the Beav regularly and put around 50 days/year in. Now it's only around 20 -25 days/year, but I'm still pretty strong from regular pilates barre classes.

 

Thanks for any ideas about max underfoot mm or ski recommendations.

On my second pair of Volkl Mantras and love them, not this seasons model. Any ski that fits your skiing style is probably great. I also have friends on the Dynastar 97 & 107s. So many great skis out now and so few that truly suck.
