I am 6'6" 180lb. The only skis I've ever owned are 2003 k2 apaches. They are pretty garbage and after skiing 40 days last year on whistler, im finally getting around to buying some new skis. I almost always ski off-piste except on pow days. I usually ski in trees and glades except when there's fresh powder. I'm an advanced skier, but not top notch. I can do any of the runs on whistler, but have a bit of trouble on some of the hike-to double blacks. I plan on using these skis for at least the next 3 years at whistler all the time and Im only looking to buy 1 pair.
I dont care to much for charging. I would like a nimble ski for tree skiing that is also good in deeper powder. I dont want something thats incapable of skiing groomers or on icy/slushy days.
The skis I am currently considering are Rossignol S3 186s, 4FRNT MSP 187, and Volkl Gotamas. I'm completely open to new suggestions.
