I'm looking to buy a new pair of skis and i'm trying to decide which ones to get. I live in New York and this year I'm going to be a ski instructor at West Point, so I will be doing the majority of my skiing there, but I plan to take a trip to Tremblant and also head out west, so I want something that performs well in the powder as well as on packed trails. My favorite kinds of skiing are moguls and glades and I also love riding switch so I want a pair of twin tips. Some of the skis I'm considering are the Volkl Bridge and the Scott Punosher (top of my list) and also the Salomon Lord and 4FRNT MSP, but I am open to any suggestions. Would these skis be wide enough to handle powder out west? Also, what length should I look at getting? I'm about 5'9" and 165 lbs. This is my first time buying skis so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
