I am curious about your recommendation for me.
Am here in Truckee and have skied Sqauw all week. I have been demo-ing skis since my skies are "old school" and not wide for the big powder. I am 46 years old 5' 7" 127 lbs. I'm not super aggressive, an advanced intermediate. My perfect day is groomed Headwall, and other long steep runs. (I grew up in the east). I am just starting experimenting going off piste with friends (granite chief off the chair to the right through the trees was a real experience!). And am thinking this is the year I will really be all over the mountain (except the bumps, no bumps for me!) I have 2 kids on mighty mites so I will be skiing a bunch this year and want to invest in some new skis that will stay with me as I advance.
I demod the Dynastar Legend and Rossi S90 - liked them both a lot. They were really quick and "turny" but seemed to feel less stable when I started to go fast. Am worried as I start to feel more comfortable and go faster they will not feel as substantial if that makes sense.
I also tried the Volkl Kenja which I liked as well. They were not as quick and turny, but as I started to get more comfortable, they were good and felt more substantial on the long groomers. Although, oddly Volkl felt kinda hollow compared to Dynastar and the Rossi S90 that I liked as well.
Since you are here in Truckee, am curious about your recommendation for a all mountain ski.
