I'm not a speed freak, I like to make short radius turns but also enjoy carving to some extent and though mogul skiing is not my forte, I still spend a fair amount of time working on them. I don't or very rarely ski the backcountry or the terrain parks. I like skiing glades on another hand.
I'm still a fan of my Metron's (especially once Mike de Santis at Summit in Framingham properly tuned them! I highly recommend his services!) and would consider a new pair seeing as the discontinued prices are rather appealing but at the same time, I'm curious what other newer skis might fit the bill.
I guess my only complaint with my Metron is that I find them to under-perform in moguls (maybe too stiff?) One of the things I like most about the Metron other than their versatility is the fact that you don’t always need to ski them very aggressively. I can relax and ski along with someone of lesser ability at slower speeds and they remain very enjoyable in those situations as well.
I’ll have the opportunity to demo stuff both on East and West coast in a few weeks. What would you recommend?
