ski selection help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a ski to replace my very old Salomon F9 skis.
I have been skiing for 30 years and consider myself advanced/expert.
I want an all mountain ski. I am not overly big - 5'2, 110 lbs.
I have been researching skis and was looking at the Volkl EXP or possibly the Dynastar Legend Exclusive. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Your description is the same as my wifes. She bought a pair of Volkl supersport gammas 154 and loves them. good luck

My wife has been skiing Atomic SX-9's for the past couple of years and is also 5'2", although a bit heavier (it's all muscle) at 125#.

She demo'd several skis this season including the Volkl gamma, Dynastar Legend Exclusive & purchased the K2 Burnin' Luvs at 160cm and is Luvin' them.

We ski 30-40 days yearly, primarily in Vail these days.

I'm similar height and build to you, and I love my Atom M:9 150's. I was shocked at how well they ski the hard pack as well as the ungroomed.

K2 Burnin Luv's

Na, I was going to put a few others but from watching my ski buddy's wife, go with the Luv.

Thanks for the feedback!! One last question - are the women skis generally too soft to ski aggressively?? I am still struggling with whether I should get women skis or not.
I have this notion in my mind that they would not perform as well for some crazy reason.
