So I'm a relatively new skier. I spent my first season skiing primarily at Kirkwood (with an awesome week in SLC - Alta/Snowbird/Snowbasin) on Rev Pro 85 170cm. 5'7 150lbs and can get down anything that's wide enough for me to turn on including the wall (double black), though it isn't always pretty. I have a hard time on chutes and narrow gullies and don't get near cliffs. I really enjoy bumps and spend a lot of time practicing in them. Still suck in powder, but that's mainly because we got almost none of it to practice in last year. I skied ~25 days last year and hope for more than that this year.
I loved the Rev Pro 85 on the icy conditions which prevailed last year and also in fresh snow up to 5" or so. As soon as things got cruddy or heavy, I felt like I was really getting thrown around, however. I also have Black Diamond Carbon Converts (180cm) that I used for the backcountry and on the two real powder days we had last year (the last days of my season).
So what I'd really like to find:
a wider ski which can be my daily driver when there's fresh snow (anything from a few inches to pow days). I want something that will handle crud better, is reasonable in deepish powder, but still fun on the groomers and especially in bumps. I realize that there's going to be a lot of duplication with my 85s and accept that.
My plan would be for this to be my daily west coast driver with the 85s being relegated to icy days (which may be the majority like last year)/after everything is tracked out. Is this a reasonable expectation, or should I just stick with my existing two skis*?
Thanks for any advice!
* Note: I have a single pair of boots (which I love) with switchable soles. Switching back and forth is a bit of a pain, however, so I really don't want to deal with having to do it on normal resort days. This is why I'm looking for something else wide other than my converts, which will remain my backcountry skis.
