I'm looking to buy a set of armada skis and have narrowed down my options to the AR6 and the ARV models. I'm looking for a good all mountain ski primarily, with enough control and a tight enough turning radius for narrow gladed runs, and the ability to go fast over groomed runs and chop that can still hold up in powder. I live in the pacific northwest and ski around here and BC mostly, so I see lots of icy conditions which I've read is a strength with the AR6's. I don't do a ton of park stuff (although I'm looking to start skiing park more) but need something that can do large drops and jumps. Since I want something light and maneuverable I would get either the 161 cm AR6's or the 166 cm ARV's. Anyone have any opinions or advice?
