I own a pair of Tigershark 10s as my primary hardpack carving ski for man made snow. They actually get out quite a bit and when i bought them i was ok at carving, now that i have a lot of time on them when its smooth, i'm laying them down low. Recently i've been watching a lot of the development team kids free ski on their way to the course and they look like they are having a blast pumping carving turns on their race skis when they are playing around. Its got me thinking that perhaps I should be upgrading to an old race ski or perhaps the Stockli SC for something more aggressive than what I'm on now. I feel like they are holding me back now. I'm probably looking for a light race or perhaps "prosumer" ski to step up my game and i'm more focused on short radius carves looking to leave deep tracks behind me.
So the loaded question.. I'm going to buy one new set this season. I'm either going to focus on the 110+ waist and get some new pow skis as my widest one is 90cm right now or I'm going to upgrade the tigersharks. I'll probably see mostly hardpack this season and can rent if I make Utah this year. So the round about way at getting to the question. Am I leaving a lot on the table with my present skis or just a little on the table and should focus on the fatties?
