Looking to buy a new pair of skis for the upcoming season. I had my heart set on the '11 Atomic Blackeye Ti's but they're IMPOSSIBLE to find. My local ski shop just got in the 2012 K2 Impact's as well as the Elan 82 xti's. I've read a lot of hype about this new rocker that the Impacts have and they're supposed to be a great all mountain ski but I wanted to see if anyone had read/heard anything more about them that maybe I can't find.
I'm an intermediate/advanced skier. Love skiing hard and fast but want something that I'll be able to relax and take down a mtn with control as well. I'm on the east coast so edge control and grip is huge, especially when we have icy conditions. I'd say I ski 60-70% of my time on trail and the rest in the woods. my ability on moguls isn't great but i'm working on it, something i want to try and improve on this season.
any help anyone can provide is greatly appreciated,
