I'm in the Colorado Mountain College product and design class and in long story short we are in a competition to see which group can make the best pair of skis. The winner gets their skis actually produced for a limited class run. So it got me thinking, what do skiers actually want? Feel free to leave what your favorite skis are and why, what you want to see in a ski, or what you hate in a ski. Anything you guys like in a ski, core type, flex, shape, just throw info out there.
