I am currently buying my first pair of skis and could use some help. I have been skiing for around 7 years but have always used rental skis. I have gotten to a pretty advanced level skiing using shitty skis, as I usually ski the double blacks and like doing large jumps on the parks. I ski on the east coast, and am looking for a good pair of east coast skis. I am looking into the Salomon X-Drive 8.0 Frontside skis as the reviews are good and they seem to be the right kind of skis for my needs. My main worry is that the Rocker/Camber/Rocker will impeed my carving abiliy. Could someone please explain to me why or why not I should get these, and what the difference between thesse or a full cambered ski would be.
If you wanna hit stuff in the park id go with a twin tip ski. If you just take a random lap to straight air kickers then id stick with something similar to what you have. If you plan on hitting any rails this season twin tips are a must. Also if you want hit some pow or off piste stuff a twin tip would help in that situation as well
