Just for a different perspective,I would advise staying out of the middle of the road stuff. By this I refer to the 70-90 mm club. These skis really don't float or build a platform under the skier as more wider modern skis do. Nor do they actually have much carvability.
I would either go high side or low side. 2 great options are a) go to a swap & pick up some racers from last season in a 165 & pull the plate for all mtn skiing or b) source some demo's from last year. The racers get new boards every season & you will not have to dump more than $100-150 into a used SL ski & every shop took a bath last year & is blowing out demos in the $325 range for mid-fatties.
I agree you don't need a quiver, yet should stick w/ the type of skiing you will identify with.
What are your boots?
