I'm a female, about 5'4, around 140, and I race on my high school GS team. Nothing serious, just at a small mountain for fun, but I also ski on the weekends on the eastcoast from VT to Canada. I would say I'm an intermediate or low advanced skiier, skiing mostly on-piste, but occasionally on softer packed snow, very rarely. I'm somewhat aggressive, TRYING to carve, but sometimes skidding my turns. I have NO idea what skis I should get! Should I get a pair of race and an all mountain pair? Can I get junior skis? Right now I'm looking at used skis, including Salomon T3V race skis (are these junior?, seller says no), Atomic BM:9, Atomic ETL, Elan Magfire 06, K2 Apache Stryker, Atomic Metron 10, Atomic Metron 9, Salomon Crossmax 8. All of these are 150-152 cm, which I THINK is good. Any that stand out as good or bad for me? Every answer is helpful! Thanks!
