I recently bought new boots, and I am skiing on old Rossignol Bandits. I am looking forward to next season, as I'm going to try and buy a new pair of skis before the start of next year. I ski fairly well, I can do all blues and a good amount of blacks, but my turns could be better and I'm pretty bad at moguls. So, here's my criteria for a pair of skis to buy.
- Newish, so they'll last a while.
- A bit big for me, I'm 5'7" and around 130 lbs, and my current skis are 160s, so somewhere around there.
- Non-specific. Not made for 100% groomers, or powder, not twin tips, etc.
- Ok on ice and east coast snow.
I'm looking at the Atomic Smoke TI and Volkl AC20/30 right now, does anyone here have any suggestions? I'd like sort of affordable skis, ones you could see me getting ahold of for under 600ish used/clearance.
Let me know, and thanks a lot! If there's anything I can clarify on, please tell me.
