What kind of skis should I buy?
Background: I bought my first set of skis this season. They're 180 cm all mountain skis (99 cm base). I think they're the Saloman QST 99s (currently in the shop so I can't check the model). I love them on non-skiied-out powder and groomed runs. They're fantastic! But they suck when I'm in slushy conditions as are typical at this time of year, and I do not
have fun with them then. They're also not great when I'm doing mogul runs and chutes.
I'm about 5'5", so call it 165 cm. Type 2-ish skier, and at least as of earlier this season an instructor put me at 4/10 for skill level. A Whistler single black diamond is about as far as I'm willing to push it. I'm most comfortable on Whistler blues. Does anyone else wish the system was absolute instead of relative? Heh.
What sort of skis should I be looking to buy for slush, moguls, tight operating conditions? Preferably with the flexibility to go off-piste without simply sinking into the snow the way rentals usually do.
