Thank you so much for your suggestions! You are all awesome! Sorry for not checking the forum last week, got busy buying the skis and skiing J.
Hi hi, everybody (Brumos, Beyond, Ski-ra, Mike C) wants to see me (rightfully) on wider skis in Rockies. I did try some wider skies and they were fun (Ross. Z9, Z11, Ross Woodo, but then…..I tried the racing ski, even though they were too long for me (170 cm Atomic slalom ski) I loved the feeling….right underneath me, sharp, holding edge…just what I know. Thanks Ski-ra for suggesting Rossi CX 80 (they do have great reviews!), that was my choice until I red it is the best for heavy expert skiers - unfortunately only demo they have here is 170 cm and it would not give the justice to the ski if I tried it).
I think Bob and Mikehoyt did understand me really well…..I do want to have carving and very responsive ski even though there is a great chance I will be skiing a lot of deeper snow. This season (since I joined the local ski school) I skied mostly groomers 90%, but I do plan to ski good powder (I agree with Mike - any ski will do for me in deep and light powder, crud is OK) and learn to ski a decent way the moguls (for that I might need different legs more than different ski). Soft groomed is similar as powder for me….any ski works (even my current ski).
Therefore….I bought Head Magnum! They came yesterday…
..and ….bummer, there is something wrong with the heel/break of the binding, so I have to send them back…..I was so looking forward to trying them this weekend. Anyway, I will certainly let you know how I will do on these skis - as soon as I will get to ski them.
Thanks again to everybody
P. S. I do not recommend a female ski to any aggressive female skier or someone who wants to grow into one very soon….I have K2 Burning Luv (supposed to be a very good female ski) but all the experts I skied with said I over-bend them. Truth is they turn really well - too well, little unstable in higher speeds and I feel I push me off the balance often - this is not happening on any male ski I have tried.
