I posted a thread a while back asking for the best skis for bumps and trees, but then my buddy pointed out to me when I told him I'd be kicking his ass down the moguls that he (on his Atomic SX 11's 180cm) would destroy me down any groomed run. Now I have an inferiority complex. Basically I'm looking for a ski that can at least sort of keep up, carve hard pack (Killington hardpack=ice) But still be nimble in the bumps. I think people were getting caught up on the fact that last time I said I like to ski the trees, but often times the trees in Killington are just wooded icy mogul runs, so I'm thinking the extra waist of the 8000's or the Karma's would be overkill. These are the skis that I've heard would be good. Any thoughts? Also there seems to be a 50/50 split in the people I've talked to on whether or not metal laminate skis will bend easily. One guy told me when I asked about the volkl's that the metal sheets were so thin that the odds of them getting permanently bent were slim.
