I am looking at a pair of used K2 Escape Pro R skis as my first pair of skis. I've been skiing on rentals on about 15 ski trips and I want to get my own. I consider myself an intermediate skier, and I mostly stick to groomed trails with the occasional loose snow. I'm having issues finding information about these skis beyond the site selling them. They seem to be pretty similar in shape to the Escape 3500, but appear to have different dimensions (105-70-92). Is it just a rebranded version of the 3500? How do these skis feel on groomed trails? They also come with Marker M900 bindings, are those good or do they need to be replaced?
Oh, and I'm 6'3, 250lbs, and these are 174cm. Central Oregon.
