After 11 years out West I have to return to New England for family reasons. The trails and conditions will be very different from where I have been skiing in the Pacific Northwest and southern Rockies. Ski shapes have changed so much. And I haven't been keeping up with East coast skis at all. I am pretty clueless about what kind of skis work out East these days. But I am pretty sure I need to change up.
Currently on a Salomon X-wing Fury in 178 as a daily driver (85 mm under foot). Really enjoyed that ski out West but I think I need something with a smaller turning radius, better on ice, and better in bumps for the narrower trails and firmer conditions in the east. (I am not sold on the industry's move to shifting everyone to wider skis - but that's a topic for another thread.)
5'9'', 170 lbs, expert/advanced all-mountain skier, likes a ski that can carve, enjoys moguls.
Recommendations? I am thinking 78-88mm underfoot range. Rossi experience 88? Dynastar powertrack? Salomon X-drive? Blizzard Latigo?
