I broke one of my skis and need a new pair but know nothing about the skis that have come out in the past 2-3 years. I need some advice.
I have been riding the elizabeths which are pretty soft, short and have a 110 waist. I am 5'9" and 150lbs. I ride about 40% park, 40% cruisers and 20% EPIC POW (well not that epic...Vail bowls, blue sky, etc.)
I love the elizabeth but would like to try something else that is not as wide. I like the idea of a symmetrical ski.

Mr.Huck "Worse. Right now someone else is mounting your skis, staring at them deeply, caressing them and doing all sorts of weird things to them. ...drilling them, screwing them. Basically your skis will no longer be virgins when you get them back. How does that make you feel?"
If you think about it, doing a switch turn vs. a regular turn is the same thing, only difference is that you are going the opposite direction. Pressure is still on the front of your boots, and you ski is still flexing and arcing the same way. I think a mostly symmetrical ski is good, but there's no point in going fully symmetrical.
That being said, I would look at the ON3P Jeronimo. It's a great do everything all mountain/park ski, 95 underfoot, close to symmetrical, a little rocker. Good flex.
