After two weeks of reading through ski magazines at Barnes & Noble and scrolling through a countless number of internet review sites and messageboards, I am completely confused over what skies I should buy. I am about 6 ft. and weigh around 160 lbs, 18 years old (12 of those skiing). I ski around 20 times per year and would consider myself a level 8-9 skier. The last three years I have skied the Stockli Laser (older one, very little side-cut, red, 183 cm.) and Stockli Stormrider ( the original one, 183 cm.) I didn't choose to ski these for any reason besides the fact that I can get them for very cheap. I kow they are handmade and suppose to be great, but I personally think they are to much ski for my ability. I really would just like to know what you guys would reccomend for someone who skies primarily groomed runs and prefers slalom and short GS turns at fairly high speeds and will occasionally ski some powder and hit a couple jumps (so basically an all-mountain ski). My Dad skies the salomon X-screams and I tried them out last week and liked them, but do you think there is a ski that would be better suited for me? Please help.
