Looking for a first powder oriented (30/70) ski.I am told that my skill level is lower advanced. My current ski is a Nordica Afterburner-which is basically groomer oriented that can handle a foot of powder. I can ski decently in a foot of Sierra powder with it. I like the ski, but I am looking for something that will work better in deeper, fresh, ungroomed stuff. Something that will take me to the next level, but can get me back to the parking lot with no problems. I don't want a powder specific ski at this point
What appeals to me about the S3 is that, from what I have read, that is does OK on groomers as well being good in two feet of fresh snow. Also the local shop carries the S3 and I like to support the local shop.
