I'm considering pulling the trigger on an awesome deal on some 2010 Black Diamond Verdict skis. I'm 5'10", 180 lbs, and looking at a pair of 180cm Verdicts to serve as my one pair of skis.
I'm the kind of skier who can get down anything, but I want to get down faster and better. This includes double black and off-piste terrain, but also steep, mogully trails. I've never had skis wider than 80mm, and am kinda freaked out by buying 102mm wide skis and calling them my all-mountain skis. But from everything I've been reading, 102mm isn't all that wide these days. From my searches on this site as well as others, I'm thinking this might be a great choice.
I'm seriously considering this pair of skis in particular because a friend will give them to me for $50. If it wasn't for the awesome price I wouldn't be rushing in - I'd demo and all that good stuff. But it is what it is.
So for me, who likes moguls as well as the steeps (and wants to get better in the crud and powder) and can't currently afford multiple pairs of skis, are these a good choice?
Edit: I'm located in Western Colorado, if that helps to know.
