New member and would appreciate feedback from people on two or 3 choices for me to try. My background:
50 years old, 205 lbs, 6 ft
Smooth groomers preferred, never in the back country.
Powder is probably something I would only ski in if it turned out to snow on the day I'm skiiing.
I took my daughters skiing at Diamond Peak in North Lake Tahoe and decided to demo a pair of Volkl RTM 84's and was just blown away at how easy it was to ski with. I haven't skied in years and previously had Kastle's.
Anyhow, I really want to get new skis and am researching different options.
My first choice would be the RTM 84 since I had such a good experience with them. But I wonder if any of the newer skis would have impressed me just as much.
Other options that I am looking into are:
Rossignol Experience 88
Rossignol Experience 98
Dynastar Legend 85
Any others I should look at? I would ski primarily California groomers, i.e. Heavenly, Norhtstar, Squaw, small local ones like Donner, Diamond Peak, Boreal, etc. No moguls, just groomers, hard pack, crud and if I'm lucky a little pow.
