I just want to say I love the forum, and this is my first post. I'm about to buy some new skis for this season, and need some input as I've read so much that making a decision has become way too tough. My old skis are 05 1080's with 912ti bindings. I like this setup pretty well, but I'm just ready for some new gear. My skiing habits tend to be about 60% steeps and 40% park. I'm looking for a ski that will do everything on the mountain and do it pretty well. I originally was thinking about the armada ar6's, but have become scared they won't float powder very well. I've also thought about the ARV's, but some people say they are a noodle. I'm also considering the volkl bridge, but have read they don't have too much pop for jumps. Ultimately I want something with plenty of pop, that is good in the park for jumps, and will float if the powder if I stray off into some nice untracked areas. I am 5'11 170 pounds. Thanks for the advice guys.
