I'm considering getting the VMT82 in 165cm to replace my 12+ year old and very much loved Fischer Progressor 8+ 165cm and to relegate my meh 4 year old Nordica NRGy 80s 169cm to rock ski status. I've read just about everything on Pugski and the interwebby about the VMT82 and it sounds like it would be a good fit for me. This will be the narrow ski of my 2 ski quiver. My wide ski, Icelantic Nomad 115s 171cm are typically pulled out for 6+ inches of fresh, deeper crud and next day leftovers. I'm 5'6" 150lbs, 48yo, mid level 8 to level 9 (on a really good day), ski all terrain at moderate to fast speeds with modern technique. I'm an EpicLocal pass holder and ski 20-30 days a season. My preference is rapid fire SL type turns but do like to open it up at times with big, swooping, high speed railroad arcs. I spend a fair amount of time skiing with my 9yo and 10yo boys through the trees and bumps at slower speeds. How does the VMT82 handle at slower speeds and in the bumps? Does it have to be driven all the time or can it casually cruise and be forgiving? The Progressor 8+ is 72mm under foot, very responsive and solid feeling, lightning quick from edge to edge, a ton of carving fun and great in the bumps. It sounds like I'm going to be giving up some of that quickness for more off piste versatility. Does the VMT82 sound like the right ski for my quiver? Thanks!
