I am looking at purchasing a new ski to add to my 'quiver.' A bit about me - I am 22 years old, 181cm tall, 64kg and I am an intermediate/advanced skier. I have done two seasons in Europe, one season in Whistler Canada and a couple of weeks in Australia so I regularly go off-piste and can happily go down any run (e.g. double black etc). Nevertheless, I started skiing quite late (18 years old) and even though I have my ski instructors licence, I am still working on my technique and am not a super aggressive skier. I currently have the Black Crows Camox 181 which I really like (though I do wish I got the size smaller) but I want a ski that will be more suited to days when I just want to stick on the piste or do some moguls - Ideally, I would want a ski that can deal with the variable conditions towards the end of the day whilst also maintaining really good edge control for carving and on ice. I found the camox wouldn't hold an edge that well on ice compared to other skis. I am currently skiing in Australia for the foreseeable future thanks to COVID restrictions.
Do you think the Black Crows vertis would be a good pick for me? Or do you think maybe the Orb's would be better? I have found very little online in terms of reviews for the vertis. I have a feeling the orbs would require too much aggression (in terms of skiing). I am open to other brands but I have really enjoyed my black crows. Cheers!
