The local swap is on this weekend and aside from getting the kids some new gear I finally decided it was time to upgrade my own ski's.
The problem is I have not followed the gear in the past 6 years or so (since the kids were born).
I currently ski on 184 cm Volkl Vectris V30's with Look P10's and Rossignol Salto GTX boots. I have never liked the boots (not enough performance) but they were one of the few pair that did not kill my feet. I used to love the ski's when my wife and I would travel to larger hills. Those were also the days when I could get 25-30 ski days a year in and was at an advanced level.
Now I am stuck in South Western Ontario and the kids ski at the local bump each weekend. My ski's worked last season, but I got quite board since there is only a couple hundred feet vertical at the max.
I want something fun for our ice packed, low vertical hill. A ski that may make it feel larger and allow me to get more turns in. I am a little slower and not at the level I was 6-10 years ago, but enough ski days will get me there soon.
Anyone have any recommendations on what to look for at the swap? A 'recreastional' SL ski? I am not concerned if it is a few years old as I don't want to spend a fortune on ski's.
