Deciding on which ski is best for you can be tough. To make it easier, ask yourself these 5 questions:
1. Where do I ski?
Not East or West, but where on the mountain? Groomers, bumps, trees, bowls etc. Be honest with yourself - and pick a ski that performs where you do.
2. What ski do I like best?
The apple doesn't fall far from the free - nor should it. Unless you're specifically looking to mix things up, going with a modern version of your favorite ski is guaranteed fun.
3. What type of conditions do I ski?
It's important to buy a ski for the conditions you actually ski, not the ones you wish you could ski (aka powder). It's OK to rent when it's deep!
4. What do I need the ski to do?
Will this be your only ski? Or one of many? If you have a quiver - then you can pick a specialized tool for a specific day. If you're looking for one ski to take with you on any trip, versatility is key.
5. How often do I travel?
Lugging multiple skis when traveling is just no fun. If you plan on traveling, you'll want one that can handle where your coming from - and where you're going to.
