Buying my first pair of pow/all mountain skis.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

New to the forums so I apologize if this is in the wrong section. I am looking at my first "fat" pair of skis. I am 6ft 135lbs, the skis that i frequent are k2 fugitives 169s(snow days), rossi scratches 157s(when i feel lazy) and a pair of 151 lines(can't remember the model) when I feel like crazy fast turns. I have recently been skiing with some powder hounds who like back country and trees. 

the dilemma, I want to be able to do bumps with ease and am not looking to go in waist deep pow, and not die when I go mach 1 down a groomer( a lot to ask I know) the 2 pairs I have been researching are the atomic blogs and the rossi s3s. They seem to get good reviews no matter what kind of skiing is done. 

the second dilemma, the place I am getting my skiis from has limited selection(friend gets half off all equipment) so i have a limited selection of rossi, dynastar, blizzard, volkl, head, and atomic and a limited product line. Has my research been fruitful with these skis or should I be looking elsewhere.

I have been shredding since i could walk and want to expand my skill set. Thanks in advanced!
