I'm just now getting back into skiing after 20 years of 'hibernation' and I'm looking to buy a ski that can carve up the ice in the Northeast with ease, but still deal with some of the variable conditions (crud, moguls). I am a good intermediate, I like the blues but would occasionally venture into an easy black if I'm bold enough. I'm 5'4" and 140 lb. I've looked at the following:
-Atomic Cloud 9
-Dynastar Exclusive Legend Idyll
-Salomon Origins Lava
I'm hoping one of these would make me a better, more confident skier in any condition. I know that a demo would help, but it's hard to find a shop close to home that has these skis in the right size. I think I started my search too late in the season, even though there are great deals now. Any suggestions?
