I am moving to within a an from Panorama and Kicking Horse and basically I am looking for new skis for these areas. I currently have Atomic skis which I used in the east coast where I currently live but they only have a 73" waist and I already know this will be too narrow.
Basically I am looking at 2 different skis, one that I could use most days there for any type of snow they get and 1 powder ski but I really would prefer one ski. I don't mind going with 2 skis if it helps.
The all mountain skis I was looking at so far are the K2 Aftershock which are 130/86/114 and for Powder skis, I was looking at the K2 Darkside which are 156/128/144.
Am I looking at the right sizing for skis? I will also be skiing in areas around like Revelstoke, Banff and other mountains I might not be aware of. I am not sticking with K2 as a brand of skis but that just a brand that is most easily accessible in local stores.
I am a pretty good skier and have skied my whole life and around Canada, US (east coast), Austria with little issue unless I get more into the back country stuff but have always been limited with my skis in the back country so trying to do things right now so I would say advanced to expert
This year I plan to do more of piste skiing and trying to because as good off piste as I can on piste. Not a whole lot of powder experience except for Whistler.
Any help is appreciated.
