I ski in the east, groomed only. Usually the snow is hard and most of the time it's icy. I like to go fast but I really need to work on my technique. I want a ski that will allow me to turn easily and carve through ice no problem.
Here's what I narrowed it down to. Please let me know if you have any experience with these. Which ones would you pick?
-Fischer RX-6 (is this called now the RX 4 Fire?)
-Dynastar Contact 10 (should I be buying 9 or 8?)
-Salomon x-wing 10 (Salomon says it's all mountain ski but the reviews say it's good on piste)
Basically I want a fun ski that will help me improve. But I guess if it's too hard to ski it will discourage me from trying new things.
I think my perfect length is 160 based on my research. If I only had two choices to pick from, 155 and 165, which one should I pick?
Thanks a lot,
