What skis should I get? [have Rossi S3, looking at 2015-16]

I'm in the market for a new 2015/2016 pair of skis and don't even know where to start--help! I'm female, advanced working toward expert level, 5'7" 135 pounds.

What are you on now?

Do you ski trees, groomers, park, race?

What are the shortcomings of your current sticks?

I'm currently on the Rossi S3 from a few seasons ago and like to ski the entire mountain without limitation. No real shortcomings of the current sticks, just thinking I might dabble in some new technology out there--wondering if I'm missing anything.

Are you looking for a one ski quiver or something to compliment the S3?

Keep the S3's for soft snow and get some carving skis.  

 

Lots to choose from, depending on what you like to ski.  Tell us more about the type of terrain, what region of the country you ski in, etc.

Oh, simple, the red one...

but seriously, what do you like and don't like about S3? Why do you want a new ski? as it been asked above, is this a replacement or compliment? What size is your S3, do you feel you need longer or shorter one, if so, when, what conditions?

If just have extra cash and like your Rossi, just get another one: I think, Saffron 7 is S3 replacement. 

but again, "all-mountains" mean what? give us your preferences: groomed, un-groomed, away from resort , (btw, where is the resort: East, West, Europe), etc... 

I hope I wasn't been rude.

All skis will have shortcomings for certain conditions, it's simply not possible to have one ski do it all and kill it in performance in all categories.

Have two or three pairs is really a wonderful option.  One for ripping groomers, one for play in the trees and softer stuff that can also perform well on powder days.  

If you are happy with your skis, keep them.  Pick the type of skiing you do most and let us know what it is and we'll be able to help with decent suggestions.  Just need more data to do so. :)
