A little about me:
I'm a 6' 170 lb skier who rarely leaves the Poconos. However, this year, I'm looking to either head north to Vermont or head west to Utah. I'm currently on a 170 cm pair of Nordica Nitrous CA's, which are pretty much perfect for skiing at my home hills. At home, I'm typically 90% groomers, 10% moguls, because that's pretty much all we have here. I'm a skilled groomer technician, but that's about it, since I haven't really been able to try much else. If I head west or north this season though, I think I'd like to start skiing a little more off piste.
If I'm planning to buy a pair of fatter skis (to supplement, not replace), would it make sense to go to an all-mountain-style 90mm-ish ski? Or would it make more sense to go 98+? I'm really interested in the Salomon Rocker2 90, on which I've seen some great deals and reviews (I think I'd go 177 on this board), but I don't know if that's different enough from what I currently have to make sense. I also like the idea of the Bonafide, but that seems to have already flown off the shelf in the 180 size. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Also, I'm on a budget, so please don't recommend anything by Kastle (I need to exercise some self-control).
Thanks in advance!
