So I'm 6' 145lb, and I'm after a ski to ride on any days that don't have fresh. I have bacons for days with anything more than an inch or so of powder.
So I'm after a ski that will be fun around the whole mountain (groomers, some skied out steeps and trees, little jibs, crud, maybe some moguls even, etc) as well as spending at least 40% time in the park doing generally smaller stuff (rails, jumps, pipe, bonks, etc.). I'd like to do butters all around too, but I want the stiffer ride so I don't die in week old crud in steeper stuff. I'll ski around BC for reference if that matters (Whis, Van city hills, Interior mountains)
I currently have 178 Invaders as well, and find them a little short/ not stable enough at speeds and in variable snow. Too soft for anything chewed up in my opinion.
So would moving from the Invader to a 181 AR6 make sense? Or would there be another better ski that could work for me?
