What the hell, input is always good.
5'3, 145lbs. Strong legs and core.
Started off two seasons ago on the K2 First Luv 142 and outgrew them within a few weeks.
Great ski to learn on. Horrible ski to go fast on hardpack. I'd say I'm a damn decent intermediate.
Demoed the mid-line K2 (whatever the blue one was in the 153) Loved it.
So.......I have a few bucks to spend. Not a ton, but have scraped together a few dimes here and there.
What do you hear about the new K2 Super line? I want a ski that miiiiiiight be a bit much for me at the beginning of the season, but that I'll have for a few years.
Ski almost exclusively East Coast so read :hardpack. Mostly Sugarbush. I'd like to get good enough to try some
trees this season and I'll be taking lessons. I like lessons. A day with a good instructor is priceless.
I can handle any green and can ski down as opposed to "get down" most blues.
Is the 2012 model that much different than the 11? And yes, I do want rocker. I loved it on the version I skied which was "catch free".
The next move up is "speed rocker".
See......I like to ski fast.....but I want stability. I'm not good enough to do Castlerock yet, but that's my goal by the end of the year.
PS, I love my boots, but they will need adjustments. I've got the Head Edge series, but they need some work around the ankles.
I'm not adverse to a boot call-out if there's something that might work better for me. I do NOT want a cement block on my feet.
We do first to last chair, almost every day and we average around 25 days. More this year.
Cheers mates! Think snow to keep cool.
