New to these parts and need some advice on finding some new skis. I recently moved to Salt Lake City from the SouthEast so I mainly have experience on groomers. Ive skied powder in Colorado a few times, but Im looking to ski more powder here in Utah. So I am looking for a good groomer and a decent powder ski too. But i would probably say I would be 60% groomer 40% powder. I have checked with some local ski shops and friends and their recommendations seem to be narrowed down to these:
Atomic Access 181/171
Black Diamond Zealot 182
More info on me. Im 6'1" and 180lbs. I consider myself an intermediate skier (but more closer to advanced than beginner in the intermediate spectrum). Im used to skiing on snow blades back east so anything is going to be longer than my previous skis.
Anyways wanted to toss this question out to a larger community of skier and see what you guys thoughts are.
