As the title implies, I'm really in need of advice on which skis to rent/buy this season. A little info:
I'm 5"11, 165 lbs and my skiing style is semi-aggressive. I'm mostly going to be skiing in Banff this winter, so I really wanna take advantage of the sweet powder I hear they have there. I will be looking at doing around 60-70% of my skiing in powder or backcountry and the rest on groomers.
On groomers I like to do medium to large carving turns at high speed. I'd like my skis to be able to handle some jumps, but nothing big - just some drops in powder/bc and some 360's wherever. I'd also like to improve my switch-riding skills and just play around a bit on the mountain. The skis don't need to be good in the park - if we're going park a day or two I'll be renting some afterbangs og T-halls.
I previously rode Rossi Scratch Sprayer BC from 06 (I think) and thought they were pretty good, although they lacked a little float in deeper powder.
So, what do you guys think? I've been looking at the Line 100/90, Armada ARV and some of the K2 boards, but I'm pretty confused as to which ones excel at what I want to do.
Thanks in advance
