I'm an upper intermediate East coast skier (comfortable in blue and most of the one black diamond runs). I already have a pair of carving skis and I'm starting to explore off-piste terrain, basically trees and non-groomed runs. I'm a lightweight guy: 5.5ft and 135 pounds. I found two very good deals to get my first off-piste skis:
- Head Venturi 95 (161cm; 93mm in the waist);
- Rossignol Smash 7 (160cm; 92mm in the waist).
I was thinking about buying the Head Venturi, but it's a "big mountain" ski and I'm afraid it might be too difficult/too tough to me. In the other hand, the Rossignol Smash seems to be almost like a beginner skier and it might soon become not appropriate anymore (too soft to my level).
Any thoughts which one of these two skies would be more appropriate to me? All the advices will be very welcome :)
