Hey Everyone, I'm new to EpicSki and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on an all mountain ski. I'm 22 yo, 5' 6" and 135 lbs. I used to race but blew out my knee one to many times but still love to rip on groomers and skip school whenever theres pow. I want something I can still rip groomers on but has a little more in the waist (80-85ish) I'm working ski patrol this year and will be skiing pretty much every day of the year. I want something with good groomer and crud performance for later in the day and has the ability to still have a little float in powder. I'm out east so I'm really not expecting much, but when we do get it I want a ski that doesn't just sink right in.
Right now I am skiing
155 Volkl Racetiger SL
165 Nordica Doberman SL R
I retired my 178 GS skis since I deff don't need anything that long anymore.
I got a pair of K2 A.M.P. Chargers from Ski Patrol for this year but I'm not a huge K2 fan and they're a little slim for what I want.
I was looking at:
Rossi Avenger 82 ti
Volkl AC 50s
I've heard good things about Kastles but they're just a little bit out of my price range. If anyone has demoed or tried these skis or has any suggestions please let me know.
