This is my fourth season skiing(~8-10 days a season). My skiing is primarily in the Lake Tahoe area. Upto this point I have largely concentrated on learning skiing(thanks to everyone in these forums!) and haven't paid too much attention to the skiis. I have a pair of older Volkyl Carvers and newish (~2 years) comfortable boots.
I am a reasonably cautious skiier, skiing blues and the groomed blacks. I do enjoy the occasional non-groomed blue/tree run, though I don't like moguls much. I am 37 yrs, 5'8''/ 160 lbs. I would probably qualify myself as a mid/upper intermediate.
I started looking at getting newer skiis, but there is so much information out there that I am completely confused as to what would be a good ski for me. Wondering if the folks in this forum have some recommendations? I am in the SF Bay Area, so if there are any ski shop recommendations I would appreciate that as well.
