Intermediate to adv. Intermediate Midwest skier here. 5'11" 195. I'm looking for new skis and I'm more concerned about getting the right ski than the price. In other words, I don't care about the cost as long as I'm getting great skis that will last me a long time. I only ski Northern Michigan so I spend most of my time on groomed and ice and never powder. Are the following skis good for me? If not, why?
Atomic Blackeye TI Skis with XTO 12 Bindings 2012----125/82/110mm ----I think I'd go with 174.
Blizzard Magnum 7.6 IQ Skis with IQ TP 11 Bindings 2012-----124/76/107mm----my choices would be 170 or 177.
