Looking for new skis, and seeking opinions on the Supernatural 92 versus the new Vantage 90 CTI. I'm a level 7+ (skiing for 30 years, but with a few years off in the middle), 5'6", ~145lbs, and this would be for skiing Eastern Canada (mostly Quebec) with forays into Vermont or the Rockies every other year. They'd need to deal with the usual scraped down hard, icy east coast stuff, as well as groomers, but I really like a playful ski, something that is maneuverable through the bumps and trees and can be slid around when needed, rather than being dedicated carvers. Obviously, a little float to enjoy the rare new snow days can't hurt
I've scoured the reviews and the forums, and dismissed some popular options (Brahma, Kendo) as probably being too stiff, and others as being a bit to carving/frontside specific. The new Vantage 90 in 169 (or 176?) seems to meet my criteria, or I could save some cash and grab a pair of last years Supernatural 92 in 165/172, although I'm open to other suggestions.
Being in Ontario, demos are not really going to happen, so I'll just be paying my money and taking my chances!
