I have always been a very aggressive skier. Grew up racing top seed USSA, skied AK and Alta many times, etc. Blah blah, who cares. I am a very good skier. Now I'm 40 and screwed. I want to ski with my daughters age 5 and 7. I need something relatively easy to cruise with the kiddos and my wife. I might be able to stomp some turns, but who knows. I don't need my old 207 super g skis anymore. (I was planning to get something new this year anyway! But plans change.)
We will be skiing on crappy MN hills, with some decent skiing in Northern MN and possibly Utah again, but in a different capacity to my old days. Was thinking of something like the Nordica Burner or the like. Any thoughts? I could always step into the system skis like the Blizzard 7.4, Outland, Enduro 800, etc.
Second Q: My boots are some old Atomic Beta Race Ti 10.50. They are super stiff and have aggressive forward lean. Been thinking of something like the Cochise 90. Am I nuts? Wouldn't mind a comfy boot with some performance. Never thought I would consider a 3 buckle boot. I have also read that the more upright boots are better suited for the modern skis. Is that sales crap?
I'm 6'2" and holding at 160 lbs. Was thinking of skis in the 170 or 178 length.
