Personally, I love skiing. I like nothing more than hiking up to the top of Jupiter Bowl in a blizzard and dropping off into 2 feet of powder. Last year I had a great pair of skis that made powder skiing fun but also worked when I went on the groomed trails with my family from back-east and on days when there wasn’t enough snow for bowl skiing. These skis also turned fast so they were good for trees and moguls. They were the Rossignol S3’s. I think I want a new pair of skis this year but I’m not sure what to get. I want to look at the other Rossignol’s and I heard the “Sir Francis Bacon’s” were great. All in all I think I need an all mountain crossover ski with thesame rocker tip I had on the S3’s to allow for quick turns.
