I am a fast skier who loves thrills. I go through powder when I can, trees when I can, jump off of 5' to 15' cliffs into powder when i can, and if I'm on groomed trails I do as little turning as possible. I am always in control, but I will admit that my technique is probably a 6 out of 10.
I cannot stand moguls because repetetively being beaten does not appeal to me, and I'm not that good
Will be skiing Vail %99 of the time, Breckenridge and Kirkwood %1 of the time.
I purchased a pair of silver pocket rockets 165's (i think) with bindings last year on Craigslist for $100 just so I would have SOMETHING to ride and it seemed like a good deal for skis that had absolutely no damage.
I have an incling that if i were to buy new skis, it would probably be something along the lines of the Gotama or chopstix.
What do you guys think? Should I just keep my pocket rockets? I still haven't skied on them oddly enough. I realize that everyone is about to say, "you haven't even skied on them? How do you know if you even need something new?" This is not the interest of my post.
