I am strong, lifelong Tahoe skier who only gets 4 or 5 weekends a year in now as a mama with 2 small kids in tow. My 40th birthday treat: new skis. I'm 5'8, 140 pounds and have strong, long distance runner legs, which tips me more towards the mantra than the aura. If I'll be skiing equal parts steeps, bumps, off-piste, trees, and then of course groomers with my kids, which is better? I know aura/mantra has a serious following, but I've also been told great things about the bridge. Also, probably 170 instead of 163 given my weight? Thanks!
