Hi. I am a 6 ft, 190 lb male in my 40's, level 6 (borderline 7) skiier in the Rockies. I have the season lesson package and am looking for a good front side carving ski for the lessons to work on technique. I already have the Line Influence 105's for my all-mountain, powder, crud, off-piste ski, so I am looking for something that will complement and not duplicate it. I am concerned that the 105's are too wide and burly for the lessons, especially given the lack of snow this year. Definitely got some looks and comments from my instructors on my first day.
Am watching some pretty good deals on used and older models of the following: Elan Waveflex 78ti, Progressor 9+, 10+, Motive 80, Salomon XW Enduro 850, Atomic D2 VF 70, K2 Charger, Recon and Rictor, but am open to other suggestions.
Also appreciate any general recommendations or guidance on width and length for carving skis out West.
Thanks in advance.
