Hows it going everyone,
New to the site and to skiing in general. I only have a handful of trips under my belt but Im addicted and I want to make an investment. I've only skied rentals up until this last weekend when a buddy lent me his pair of K2 seth viscious skis. I thought they would be difficult to use since they were longer than anything I previously used and were very wide at the waist but once I hit the slopes, it was like a revelation. The most fun I've ever had on the mountain. So I did some research based and the on what I read I am looking for and wider all-mountain ski. One particular ski that seemed to fit the bill was the Dynastar legend mythic riders. Problem is I cant really find a pair at 178. I know the model is a few years old but I dont know where to look for used or older skis.
My googling has lead me here and I'm hoping some of you good people can provide me with your valuable advice. Am I thinking to narrow only looking for the mythic riders? Is there a similar ski that is comparable to mythic riders? What I liked about them is the measurements at 122/88/110mm (@178cm) and all the good reviews.
If anyone can offer up some advice on where to find used/older skis I would really appreciate it. I dont really want to drop $800 on a brand new 2013 model ski but I dont really know where to look.
Thanks in advance
