I am looking to make my first ski purchase. I have been skiing leisurely for about 15 years. I am 30 yrs old, 6'3", 190lbs. I consider myself an advancing intermediate skier.
I am looking for a ski that will give me great all-mountain capability. The goal is flexible and fun. I live in the Northeast and would like to take some trips out West and ski the powder. I like to get some speed but I am not a racer. I would like to have some playfulness in my setup but don't plan to do big aerials.
After some research, I am focused on two skis. The Volkyl Bridge and Kendo. I really like the dual tips the Bridge offers. I am trying to get an idea how much better the Kendo handles on groomers. I will be skiing those most of the time in the NY, Vermont, PA regions. Has anyone skied both who can compare/contrast? Any shop folks who can give me some insight? Does the cambering work to give you a nice carve?
