Hello, everyone, just joined the forum!
I've been looking for some new skis because my current pair is pretty much worn out. They are Dynastar 6th sense 2010 model. I got them around age 12-13 and never took care of them (no waxing, edge tuning, etc.) and they look trashed. I just got into waxing and edge tuning this January and thought id get some fresh skis and bindings for this coming up season and get a bit more serious about my skiing.
I've been looking a lot into the all mountain category but I am so overwhelmed by the amount of choices that are out there and can't decide on any single pair.
Heres some more info:
1st: This pair will have to last more than 1-2 seasons, don't have to money to buy new skis every year
2nd: I would prefer a wider waist, my current Dynastars get Bogged down and sluggish in softer snow
3rd: I'd like a lighter ski, with not a whole lot of swing weight as I also am starting to learn park tricks (mostly spins and stuff)
I Live in California, usually ride Boreal or Squaw Valley, I weigh 160 pounds, around 5'7" tall. I don't stick to any specific trail, all over the mountain, groomers, trees, powder (when its around lol) park, so pretty much all mountain. I do spend more time in the park than the rest of the mountain so I am looking for something like a park, all mountain wide ski, not loyal to any specific brand, not really looking to rent skis out, want my setup to be ready for the season, usually ski about 15-20 days a season
