On the advice of the people in Monods (on Banff Ave.) I plumped for a pair of Rossignol B2 Bandit skis (as opposed to the RPMs which are more of a groomed piste ski). When I picked 'em up, the guy said "you're going to have a great time with these, they're funtastic". He was right...
The B2 is a really easy ski to turn - way way better than my old Head Cyber Cross skis. The B2's also really fat, so floats on powder. It's a really flexible ski, so easy to navigate around bumps and the like. All in all, they're really good.
The only problem with them, is they look like rentals. Some "customising" required (otherwise I'll lose them in a crowd ;-)
