I'm need to buy a pair of all-mountain skis with a bias for utah powder. I am a boarder by trade, but have decided to have a crack at skiing. I am a very fast learner, and have picked up skiing reasonably quickly, so I would say I'm roughly at an intermediate level. I'm going to Breck for 2 weeks in Feb and then to Snowbird for another 2 weeks, so I will be doing A LOT of skiing, all mountain at Breck, and Heli skiing in the Wasatch. The skis I'm looking at is the Rossignol 2012 Sickle. Given that I'm an intermediate, will I find them too difficult to begin with? I'm happy for a bit of a learning curve, and as I haven't done much skiing before, I'm going to get used to whatever I buy. So I'm looking for a ski that will handle groomers (comfortably, I'm not a speed skier/aggressive at this stage) and super deep Utah pow.
I'm 5'9'', 155 pounds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
