Hi and thanks in advance for your help.
I am short 5'8", 250lbs, high intermediate skier looking for 2-3 year old powder skis.
I ski at Bogus Basin in Idaho, all groomer slopes with a new interest in getting off trail.
I am currenlty on Rossignol S86 in 170 for the last two years and like them when skiing with my wife and kids (slower speeds).
boots: custom fitted Salomon rs mission 12's.
When the wife and kids head in for the day, the S86 take what I throw at them without complaint.
I am not a fast skier but enjoy throwing my weight into tight arcs at medium speeds on the S86's.
Last year I caught my first powder days and went face first a few time and had a few yard sales anytime I worked up some speed in the 3-10" of powder.
There is no way I can afford new skis so I am always looking for used, 2-3 year old used/demo's.
My intent is to use these off trail, some wide open tree areas, low/medium sloped runs.
Line 100's and S3's are now coming up for sale used and abused in various places and I am wondering in I am headed in the right direction?
