5'8" and 170 lbs. 32 years old. Been skiing 4 seasons 30 times per year, most recently in '04/'05 Rossi B2's at 170 cm as a level 8; however, I wanted a carving ski and recently purchased Volkl 6 Stars at 168 cm. I've never felt more comfortable at speed and on steeps, but my mogul skiing regressed about ten-fold with me continually losing confidence in the bumps. Is there a ski out there that would be more suited for me as a carver, yet still manageable in the bumps? I have tried 5 Stars in 168 (too stiff), Crossfires in 167 (good in bumps, but a little chattery at speed), and RX8's (still, a little too stiff in the bumps).
