I have these as my everyday ski and also live in the Northeast. I haven't done rails in a while, but I'm a pretty aggressive skier, and these skis haven't disappointed. The only issue I would have with these skis if I were you is whether or not you ski switch. They're not a true twin tip ski, so that could be an issue for you. But in terms of everyday performance and durability, these skis rock.
