I ski Mammoth pretty much exclusively. I have a pair of Atomic Metron EX (120/84/113) that I've been skiing on for two years now. They work fine, but I'm looking for a ski that carves well and is lighter than the Atomic which is about double in weight to my cousin's skis. I'm less concerned about powder, I can always break out the Atomics, than working the groomed and advanced runs (tight avi chutes off 22, and the top) with tight turns.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Brodie

It sounds like you are wanting almost a slalom ski. Not sure that is best. But, you need to look at the turning radius for the length of ski you want. The tip, tail, and under foot widths of your skis will result in completely different turning radius at a 150 length than at a 180.

I have not skied them, but it comes on good authority that the volkl unlimited 50 is a great carving ski. Otherwise get a good GS race ski if you want something to carve deep ruts on firm days.

I'm either on powder skis or race skis. The race skis are great on hard snow. Go with like Atomic, Blizzard, Elan, Rossignol, Fischer, or Volkl. All are great skis, and the slaloms usually have around an 11m turn radius with a 165.

Check out the Dynamic's I have for sale on the barter board. They were put in the attic because they were too carvy for me.

I have the Rossi B2's and really like them. The B3 and B4's get progressively wider.
