I want my skis to be able to perform well balanced, smooth turns. And I want to have complete control over them if something goes wrong, for example if I want to escape a hard fall

If something goes wrong, its gone wrong already, so heavy or light ski's, I don't see the relevance here to be honest... Unless they fall on your head!

No doubt heavier ski's will affect your turning... they will heavy more momentum for a start.... This is where the benefit of having a very shaped ski comes in... I am presuming we are talking about a piste carver... in which case, I doubt the weight of the ski is going to affect you THAT much, but it depends on your skiing competance!
