Looking for some recommendations on an all mountain ski for the typical New England winters.
I'm 32 and stand about 6' and 230lbs. I consider myself a high intermediate / expert skier and am confident in skiing almost any terrain out here, short of extended bump runs or trees. I've been skiing since i was a kid, but have only been a few times each of the last several years.
Last couple skis I've been on in order have been:
- Volkl Supersport 4-Stars and 5-Stars (2002 / 2003ish) - These were my first shaped skis and I loved both versions of these. I ended up demoing them for a couple years each time i went and was rather happy.
- Volkl P30 RC (late 90's ?) - bought used from a friend who upgraded. Ski'd for a few years and they were adequate but always felt heavier and less maneuverable.
- Volkl AC30 (2007ish) - Demo'd these for two days. They were nice and snappy and i generally enjoyed them.
- Unknown Dynastar model (2011) - not sure what model, as they were a free loaner from a friend's shop but they were basically an all black ski with silver graphics. They were good for a few days, no particular feelings one way or the other.
I'm looking for something which will be a good choice for mostly cruisers and to attack steep spots here and there. Not sure what i should be looking at in terms of size or features any more....
