What are you looking for out of your ski? Do you like Stiffer skis (better for jumps and groomers) or do you want softer skis (for butters and rails)?
As a fellow Minnesota turned out west skier (i waited til I was out of college because I was stupid) I'd recommend a wait for a pow specific ski.
Buy a good Park-specific ski for this coming season. Hold off on somthing pow specific til you move out west.
Then after you chose a place out west to live at next year, save over the summer and buy a specific pow ski, geared towards the area you live in. Colorado and utah has drier snow so you can get buy a less fat ski. PNW or Alaska has wet snow so you need a much fatter skis to go throught the snow.
If you want more info about moving out west pm me. An ON3P is a small indy ski company out of Orgeon. They are up and coming ski compeny. High durabilty skis.
