Hello, first post so I'm a bit nervous! I'm a confident intermediate skier who's happy on all blue and red slopes, and most black slopes, and am continuing to improve my skiing. I've recently got into freestyle skiing, and, although my skills are extremely limited, I really really enjoy it. I've been looking to buy a new pair of skis to replace my now very battered and generally quite crappy Wedze Xld 500 all mountain skis. I'd like a pair of skis that can go to the terrain park, but my main priority will always be going on piste and occasionally heading off-piste, so all mountain performance is a priority! I mainly ski in Abetone, a small(ish) resort in northern tuscany, with the odd jaunt to the alps thrown in. Abetone receives little natural snowfall, so most of the conditions I'll be skiing in will be either be sheet ice or chopped up slush. I've been considering the K2 poacher and sight, the Line chronic and Tom wallisch Pro, Faction prodigy 2.0, volkl revolt 95 and Armada arv 96. If there are any others please recommend them. I am 6ft 3in and roughly 15kg. I've been agonising over this decision for the last three months, so any help is very much appreciated!
(ps, any ideas about the length of the ski?) Many thanks, and sorry if I've missed anything!
