I'm looking for a new ski and I'm looking for some advice from you guys. What i'm looking for is a pair of skis that handles well on piste (i'm still 40-50% of my time on piste) but I'm more and more going off piste and on steeper, more difficult terrain(see picture) so I was thinking about a a wider ski that excels in chopped, variable conditions. I'm also a pretty playful playful skier that likes to jump of little drops, do 360's/180's of little jumps and do some park from time to time. I only ski 2 weeks a year so I don't have the luxury to pick my skiing days depending on the weather. I'm also a very lightweight skier, being 5'11 and weighing 135 lbs.
Right now I'm skiing the Volkl Kink 16's at 171 (who are 89mm width) and although I love them on piste and in the air, I find them a little to narrow/ difficult off piste.
I have been looking at the Faction CT 2.0's, the Armada ARV 106 and the Atomic Automic 109 2016.
What do you guys think would be a good ski for me?
Thanks in advance!
