BetaRacer, I have a question concerning the Atomic 10EX. Specifically, the 10EX's carving ability and edge grip on hardpack/ice. What I'm looking for in a ski is the ability to blast/carve through anything at high speed. I ski mostly in the east (Vermont) with trips out west once a year. I'm sold on Atomic's race skis, but I'm looking for something that won't get thrown around as much after the groomers get torn up by the high traffic density found at most eastern ski areas. I have owned (and sold)a pair of 10.20 BetaRides, and have demoed the 9.22BetaRide. Both are good skis, but neither deliver the all-out performance I'm looking for. I'm 5'10" 250lbs, ex college racer and current masters racer, so I really need a ski that can withstand a lot of power. I know that a wide ski like the 10EX will be slower edge to edge than a race ski, but that's ok--what I'm looking for is a ski that will tear up anything the mountain has to offer (i.e. an all mountain GS ski). Thanks for any advice.
