I will get to live in northern NM next year and want some skis for the slops in north NM and the Colorado area. I tried several skis three years ago and loved the Volkl 5 Stars for carving the groomed slopes at our small Ruidoso mountain here. We rarely had powder but I'd like to try it. I've never skied a big famous place.
Skis and ski trends evolve, plus don't know what kind of snow to prepare for in those areas. Generally speaking, are mountains in that area mostly nice groomed slopes? Do they have a lot of powder usually?
I guess if there will be tons of powder I should get a wider ski? I do want to carve, so reverse camber or rockers might not be good? Or yes? ????
Thanks for any help....
