Looking to replace "Alpina" skis

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

I would like to get advice on new skis to replace my current pair of  "Alpina" skis. The Alpina skis have radius 16.6 @ 168. I am 6'2" and 190 lbs.

I ski exclusively in the East with lots of ice and minimal snow (at least this season). I prefer long winding trails over straight-down-the-mountain (think "Toll Road" at Stowe). Gentle sloping greens and blues are nice as well, but I hate moguls and stair-case trails. 

 

For the new skis, I was thinking of keeping the length at around 168, but with a bit sharper radius. I have been looking at the Atomic Smoke, Dynastar Outland, Salomon Enduro and Volkl RTM. Any other suggestions? Any preferred brands? Quality? One better than the other?

I'd recommend a 172 Outland 80 XT. If you're looking to step your performance up go with an Outland 80 PRO.

Consider going up a bit, to the 175cm-180cm range, with only a slight bump to the radius, 17-20 range.
