I am in the market for new skis would love some advise!
I am 5' 6" around 135lbs.
I have been skiing since I was 4, but never competitively, so I would say I am intermediate/advanced.
I ski mainly VT/ME but I have been going to CO/UT at least once a year recently- Hoping to make it out to Jackson next year.
I have pair of park skis (line anthems 171cm) so I am looking for an all-mountain ski for groomers/trees/steeps/some jumps that won't be useless on powder days/out west.
I would like the skis to be capable of holding an edge and handle speed, but i'm not a racer and I would rather have something a bit playful than rigid metal boards.
I have read good reviews about the volkl bridge and it seems appropriate for my needs. (I would get the 171cm)
However, I read about the Volkl 90Eighty that is replacing the bridge next year.
The author writes,
"Next down the line is the 90Eight, which will essentially take over last years (reverse camber) Bridge. Now with camber underfoot and rocker in the tip and tail, you get a more versatile ski, and in my opinion, will do much better on hard snow than the bridge. "
So maybe I should wait for the 90Eights? Any thoughts on the 90eights vs. Bridge?
Any other recommendation would be great! I have been infatuated by the bridge because of its supposed versatility but please let me know if I should be considering other skis.
