Hi, new to the board and after looking at other threads - couldnt' really find the answer to my question so figured I would post to see if anyone had experience/thoughts/advice.
- 6'5, athletic 270 lbs.
- would consider myself a intermediate skier - skied all blue runs at Taos and Heavenly this year, and ski Snowshoe, WV back home (live in NC)
- mostly a front side skier, but enjoyed some runs with bumps and trees this past trip in Tahoe with all the fresh powder
- marrying into a ski family so time will be spend 50% at Snowshoe, 50% out west, so looking for an all mountain ski
After doing some pretty extensive research and checking of local shops in Tahoe and here I have narrowed my choices down to the K2 Rictor and Volkl RTM 80. The Rictor is in a 174 length, while the RTM is a 176. Being last year models (which is fine by me) they are both pretty good deals from what I can tell, but the Rictor is about $100 less...
I would love to hear from you folks your experiences with these skis, and what you think would be the best choice. Thanks for reading!!
