I am now approaching my mid 50's and have been skiing on and off piste for 30 plus years. I go skiing a couple of weeks a year and very occasional weekends. I have moved with the trend's in skiing from rigid planks (race skis) and big softies to one pair of all mountain skis and currently ski Dynastar Intuitiv 74's (175 cms). These have been a joy to ski and off piste. They are now showing their age and the bases are near to being replaced - so time for a new pair. Been skiing to Alagna in Italy already and tried the rather limited range available in resort and didn't like them (Atomic / Volkl / Head). I'm heading to Tignes France in 2 weeks who have a wider selection.
I'm no longer a solo back bowl artist and the injuries are mounting so I don't do extreme / full free ride skiing any more and enjoy a slide from restaurant to restaurant as much as anything but when the snow's right and or I have booked a guide I enjoy a full on day out in the wilderness and want the ski to enjoy it.
Advise please - from the reviews the Dynastar Sultan 80/85 look like they might be the ski I am looking for but any advise from anyone would be greatly appreciated. As the range just for Dynastar will take me all week to test! I want 3 or 4 great skis to test and make a decision.
