As much as I like the FX94 - and own a pair - not sure it'd be my first pick for a do-all eastern ski for your mission, which seems to emphasize groomers, frozen, hardpack, and the occasional park. It's a weird ski to describe, truly a mountain approach ski that can be used well for other stuff. Especially good in trees. But not an ice pick, exactly, and IMO not for busting eastern crud, which can have the consistency of refrozen icees. For a guy your size and mission, I'd think the MX88, or this season's Stockli Stormrider VXL, or the Head REV85, or the Volkl Kendo, or as Phil sez, the Sentinel, would all work well.
Be warned that these are all fairy beefy skis, all like speed, all will prefer power style, all will want some attention to mechanics, or you'll end up in continuous yard sales. Of them, would opine that the REV85 and MX88 will be a touch more forgiving than the others, but not a lot. If you want something slightly lower key, but still strong and versatile, as Phil says in the footnote, the LX92 is a fine alternative to the MX88, and the Dynastar Outland 87 apparently is a great all around with some body to it.
