So I was wondering if anyone has skied this year's ANT in the 181 size. I go to school in VT and am mulling over a few options. I think I'm leaning towards the ARV but I'm not sure if it's a little too soft for me (if anyone can comment on the ARV in the 185 as well that'd be sweet). My main concern is how my skis will handle in the bumps and trees. I like a stiff ski that doesn't get tossed around but at the same time don't want something that's just too big. (Park is also important but I don't need anything too sophisticated in that regard).
I've also considered the Kung Fujas and the Rossi S5 BC. Anybody ski any of these in east coast bumpy conditions? Thanks.
