I am heading into the mountains again for 3 weeks on the white stuff around SLC, but I need to buy a pair of used skis when I get there. Renting makes NO SENSE! I live on a sailboat down in the Caribbean so will have to sell them again or just dump them as I can't get them down to the boat or store them.
I am 6' 3" 250 lbs and 65 years old with a weak left knee. I only ski groomers nowadays.I just loved my 200cm long Atomic Beta Carve 10 22 skis. They were lightweight, easy to turn if I was in trouble and when I was skiing well carved well.
I have tried skiing on modern 180cm long skis and dont much like how it feels. I was glad to get back to something longer. with less side cut.
What I am looking for is a list of old school skis around 200cm that would have similar behaviour characteristics to my old Atomics,. lightweight with some sidecut. so that when I hit SLC I can go and pick up something used.
All suggestions gratefully received..
