New Pair of Skis-Powder and Packed-what to get?

I'm looking to buy a new pair of skis and i'm trying to decide which ones to get. I live in New York and this year I'm going to be a ski instructor at West Point, so I will be doing the majority of my skiing there, but I plan to take a trip to Tremblant and also head out west, so I want something that performs well in the powder as well as on packed trails. My favorite kinds of skiing are moguls and glades and I also love riding switch so I want a pair of twin tips. Some of the skis I'm considering are the Volkl Bridge and the Scott Punosher (top of my list) and also the Salomon Lord and 4FRNT MSP, but I am open to any suggestions. Would these skis be wide enough to handle powder out west? Also, what length should I look at getting and what width should I get under foot? I'm about 5'9" and 165 lbs and I've been skiing since I was 4 (I'm 18 now) so I would say I'm pretty experienced. This is my first time buying skis so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

hey, i checked into some skis that i think you would like and this the k2 extreme are probly the best for you. they are very versitile whitch meants that they will be good for moguls and things, they are fat so they will be good for powder, they are twin tips, and they are just a great all mountain ski. I found a website with great pics and prices, its the one where i always get my stuff and it has always worked out great so. HERE is the link.

Dude, that's three separate posts promoting the same site. Take it to Ski Marketplace and call it a day.

Punctuation would be a start.

As I stated in my post, take the promos to the Ski Marketplace site or put the site link in your sigline.
