I've been in the market for new skis all season but can't seem to make up my mind, hoping to get some solid advice from your guys so that I can finally pull the plug.
A bit about me:
Weight: Just over 200lbs (yes, I'm a big girl)
Years skiing: +20 years
Ability: Advanced (Can handle Double Blacks and some moguls)
Current skis: Older Elans (116/69/96, R:14.4, L:160, Classic camber profile with flat tail)
Boot size: 24.0 (properly fitted and all that jazz)
Main Ski Area: Eastern Groomers, some off-piste, some minor jumps and box rails in the park)
I like my current ski's handling on hard packed but as soon as there's some fresh snow and a bit of crud, I just plain hate them. I'd like something with more pop, that's more stable when dealing with fresh snow, that can handle speed and a more agressive skiing style. I like the reviews on the Blizzard Brahmas and am kind of leaning towards them at the moment, in 166 since I'm pretty short. Thoughts? Advice? Other recommendations? Any feedback would be appreciated at this point.
