I'm getting a new pair of skis this year, but I don't really have any idea where to start as far as what skis to check out.
Currently I'm skiing on Salomon 1080s 171cm (orange space-frames...not sure what year exactly). I need a ski that is shorter, fatter, and way lighter. I would like a bit more flex than the 1080s, but I don't want to sacrifice too much stability.... My 1080s hold an edge on almost anything, and I don't want to give up that control.
Most of my time is spent off trail in the trees, but I also love skiing bumps, and I want to spend a lot more time in the park this year.
I ski primarily in VT, but I go out West occasionally, and I should be moving out there within a couple years. Basically I need an east coast ski that wont be completely worthless if I end up moving out west.
Thanks for the help
