Hi there - this spring I busted the bindings on my 20 year old? K2's that I bought on ebay for $20 when I was a first timer 15 years ago. Busted them on a deep mogul right in front of my friend - then had to make the long walk down the mountain - haha!
I took it to the local ski shop to try to donate the skis and they laughed at me and said no thanks - then one young guy said he'd take em for art work. I said, 'here ya go!' and walked out.
Anyway, I've been wanting a new set for a long time and with the old ones finally giving up the ghost... it is time.
I am 6'0" and try to be under 200 lbs. I would say I'm intermediate who's been skiing for around 15 years (at least every other year). I struggle on the moguls (I think because I had longer skis), but my brothers cannot beat me down the mountain in a downhill 'race'. I'd like to get something where I don't give up the downhill title, but one that could help me out a little on the moguls and one day possibly in the deep powder. I ski Wolf Creek, CO most of the time. I guess I'm looking for an all mountain ski that is on clearance...trying to buy right now as shops are clearing out inventory?
Looking for help on what kind of skis / brand / store...any other useful info. Thanks,
