New Skis The Season, Need Help! [in CA, Boreal or Squaw mostly]

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

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

 

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Also, I have been doing research for a few days now but thought I'd also turn to this forum for some guidance

been thinking about The Armada Edollo, ARVti, Rossingol Soul 7, thats about it would prefer a twin tip for the parks

any suggestions are welcome, not really deciding between the three I just listed those are just some I've been thinking about

 

Thanks Again!
