Ok, first post, be kind.
I ski approx 45 days per year, just moved New Mexico, usually ski at Taos (steep, can be variable conditions, spend 1/2 my time hiking the ridge.) 5'1" female, advanced-expert, 115 #, (130 with day pack and boots on.) I picked up a pair of new 2009 154cm Salomon XW tornados at a decent price.
I usually ski 156 Volkl Auras, but they aren't ideal for icey moguls and bulletproof mornings. (I generally HATE women's skis due to the binding position and ramp angle, but the Auras don't behave as such.)
Anyway, the store accidently sent me a pair of the Titanium version, which has turned my purchase into a great deal, but given me a really stiff ski. Contacted the store, they said ok if I wanted to return or keep ski.
So... Is the Titanium version of this ski going to be to stiff for me in bumps/ off piste considering my size/ weight?
Any thoughts would be appreciated, and, no, I don't want to deal with selling the skis on e-bay, I'll just return them.
