I'll be heading to Whistler at the beginning of April and am tired of renting, so I'd like to pick up some reasonably decent skis now that there are end-of-season sales going on.
I'm about 6', 205lbs, probably an intermediate these days (used to be very good, but time/job/kids have limited my skiing to just a couple times a year recently). I'm looking for a ski for mainly groomers, although if I would love to find a little powder. Speedwise, mainly a cruiser: I just need to keep up with my kids, so don't need to go too fast (not yet, anyway :-).
I think I've narrowed down my choices to these three skis, in either 170/171 or 177cm length:
- K2 Shockwave
- Head I.Peak 78
- Head I.Peak 78 Pro
- Head I.Peak 84 Pro
Right now I'm leaning toward the Shockwave in 177cm, but I'd be interested in feedback on the skis or length. Thanks in advance.
