I have not purchased a new pair of skis in over a decade, and have finally decided to make the leap. Unfortunately, that leaves me wanting for knowledge about modern skis.
I ski about 50% moguls, 30% carvers, and 20% glades. I am looking for a one-ski quiver all-mountain ski that can handle short snappy turns, bumps, and East-coast ice. Powder is not a concern for me, as I will rent when I go out West.
Based on reviews I have read online, I am trying to narrow the field of skis I would like to demo. The Nitrous CA, Volkl AC-30, and K2 Apache Recon all seemed like good choices, but do not receive high marks in the bumps.
Some of the twin-tips like the Salomon Lord, Scott Punisher, and Nordica Enforcer receive higher marks in the bumps but I am not sure they are great for East-coast ice. I have also read about the Atomic Nomad Blackeye TI, Elan Megafire 82 TI, Volkl Tigershark, and Atomic Snoop.
Obviously I cannot demo all of these, so does anyone have advice about which of these skis or any other skis that I may have overlooked would best match what I am looking for?
Thanks in advance!!!
